Tell us about your idea

he idea is simple.
Current education problems are too focused on something that is ideal and uniform. whereas many things around us are more contextual and tend to be experimental. our children are too busy learning about lessons at school so sometimes they forget what their parents do, how their parents make money for them, and so on. some parents have succeeded in attracting their children's interests so that when they become adults they choose to work like their parents, but some others fail or even encourage their children not to work as they do. they forget that what is important is not to transfer work to their children, but to provide the parents with experience so that their children can develop themselves according to the information they have gathered, without forcing them to choose.
so the first phase of this education is the family phase. the exam is finally given by their own parents according to the age of the child.


the second phase is the nearest neighbour. when the child already knows his parents, the education system develops to the neighbours. here the problem becomes more complex, because in addition to being required to learn, children must also be able to solve problems at the neighbouring level. at least just helping neighbors educate their children. 

in this phase also children have to be able to ensure healthy and sick neighbors, so that they have helped map potential problems for themselves and their families. when studying the family of their neighbors, they will automatically also know the economic condition, and indirectly will provide reciprocity. when their family is over and their neighbors are deprived, there will automatically be a desire to help their neighbors, which means helping a family survive together in this pandemic. while if on the other hand, the student's family is deficient and the neighbors are excessively, indirectly also provides an opportunity for the neighbors to find out about our condition and might make them help their neighbors. This phase has differences based on age, where children of primary education are only allowed to examine the nearest neighbor and directly adjacent. while secondary education can extend to village boundaries.


the two phases above might be applied to primary to secondary education (ages 6-15 years)

the third phase will be more complicated. but the main goal is to solve the problem contextualy. make sure the boundary are healthy and covid-19 free. 

when the community is awakened, real education begins. education that is rooted in contextual needs, not based on economic needs. when the power of the community is built up, the economy naturally builds contextually

 

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

Current education problems are too focused on something that is ideal and uniform. whereas many things around us are more contextual and tend to be experimental. our children are too busy learning about lessons at school so sometimes they forget what their parents do, how their parents make money for them, and so on. some parents have succeeded in attracting their children's interests so that when they become adults they choose to work like their parents, but some others fail or even encourage their children not to work as they do. they forget that what is important is not to transfer work to their children, but to provide the parents with experience so that their children can develop themselves according to the information they have gathered, without forcing them to choose. students also sometimes forget to know their environment, sometimes even do not know the name of their neighbors. but sometimes they live close to great people, who can teach them how to survive, including how to work well.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

I live in Semarang, a provincial capital on the island of Java, the most populous island in Indonesia. my neighborhood is an educational environment, where by chance my family is an educator. I myself am an architect who has managed a family-owned school since 5 years ago
