Abstract

Character education which is intensively being implemented in the field of education is one of the solutions to the moral crisis in Indonesia country. The reform government actually has formulated the national development missions which put character education as the first mission of the eight missions in order to realize the national development vision. The objective of the implementation of multicultural character education is to develop the learning process in the school environment which is effective and efficient on the basis of the acknowledgement and acceptance of differences related to gender, race, and social class. Character education has the same essence and meaning as moral education or ethic education so that the implemented value education becomes complex if it is also based on noble values originating from the nation’s cultures. The process of the character education implementation can be carried out through multiple learning strategies in the micro (classroom) level; character education is more effective with the support of the school management which is consistent and synergistic. On the hand, the positive school culture empowering all school members also becomes one important component affecting the success of the character education implementation. Therefore, the inculcation of multicultural character education as a whole will be able to create equality and fairness in the school environment. Hence, the implementation of multicultural character education offers two alternatives through the application of educational strategies and concepts based on the use of the diversity in the school environment. The multicultural approach is an educational strategy utilizing the diversity of students’ cultural backgrounds as power to build multicultural and tolerant attitudes and mutual respect for the differences among school members. Keywords: Character Education, Multicultural
