Chairman of the Muhammadiyah Central Board (PP) Haedar Nashir conveyed the Minister of Education and Culture Regulation (Permendikbud) No. 23 of 2017 on Implementation of Character Education through five school days is a very appropriate policy.
Haedar believes that Minister of Education and Culture (Mendikbud) Muhadjir Effendy has taken the right and proper policy in implementing the policy of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) for the success of character education. Mendikbud is also known as an educational expert with a strong academic base and broad experience in the world education, so as to be in a strong, principled, and constitutional policy path.
Haedar hopes that President Jokowi would provide reinforcement, back up, protect and fully support Mendikbud on the policy that has been taken since basically the policy runs/applies the character education policy which is the commitment of the Jokowi-Jusuf Kalla Administration.
Haedar added if referred to Permendikbud No. 23 of 2017 it is apparent how strong the base of rules and considerations made as the foothold, that what Mendikbud has done fully implements the President’s policy. If there is a discourse or plan to raise Permendikbud into a Presidential Regulation, he added, then it should be to refine and strengthen the policies that have been taken by Mendikbud; it should not obscure, weaken and cancel.
