Therefore, improving the quality of teachers must start from the lowest level, namely Early Childhood Education (PAUD) with regard to building children’s character.
The reason is that Indonesian human resources with good character or social skills will be able to compete and be accepted by the industrial world.
Based on a study conducted by UI with respondents of 50 CEOs interviewed in 2018 and 2019 about how young workers behave in the eyes of professionals.
So that character is necessary because it has become an internal challenge that is necessary until now.
According to him, research shows that the level of creativity of young workers is very good. But unfortunately this is not in line with their behavior in the work environment.
As a result, industry interest in employing Indonesian children with foreign qualifications and children from the region is increasing.
“The problem is not that they study abroad, but that graduates of foreign universities have an extraordinary work ethic,” he said.
Therefore, Devie explained that the role of early childhood education is very important. The government should focus on gradually improving the quality of Indonesian education at all levels so that everything is handled properly.
