Identification of Character Values of Public and Private Junior High School Students in Rantau Selatan District


Character crisis in children is still an unresolved problem. Cases of drugs, bullying, sexual violence, and crime against children are often found in Labuhanbatu district. Although the government has issued a Government Regulation on Strengthening Character Education (PPK), the National Mental Revolution Movement (GNRM) program, and the implementation of Curriculum 13 in schools, the results have not yet shown the desired target. The root of the problem is actually not forming a good character so that the values of character and national insight in children are very low. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to identify what character values have been attached to students so that later they can be used as references for further research. This research was conducted in public and private junior high schools in Rantau Selatan District. The research method used is quantitative and the population is junior high school students in South Rantau District spread over 8 schools. The sample in this study was only seventh grade junior high school students to make it easier for researchers to carry out further research. The instrument and data collection technique used is a character test which will be distributed to class VII students to find out 18 character values in students.
