The objectives of this research were to: 1) study the educational model of the Community Ethics Center (Tadika), 2) the role of the Community Ethics Center (Tadika) towards participation in local development. This research was a qualitative design which used formal and informal interview forms, and documentations for collecting data. A sample group was selected purposively from a group of experts, including 27 key informants, from 3 groups, namely, Imam Representative group/mosque committees, parents' representatives, Ustaz representatives (teachers) and knowledgeable academicians.
The study revealed that
- Imam / Mosque Committee was responsible for being the center of the community management system which was an organization combined with the mosque educational system under the mosque policy in operation and as an organization responsible for policy formulation, management principles, rules and regulations of the community.
- Most teachers were local people with religion knowledge at the level of 7-10 years old, having a generous mind, responsibility, faith and agreement to help each other to transfer knowledge that they have to others by aiming for spiritual merit rather than compensation in order to provide education for the community, learn and be able to actually practice according to the principle Teachings of Islam.
- Parents need to be more involved in Tadika. There must have a collaboration between Tadika and parents, a joint activity between Tadika and the community such as Tadika relationship religious days.
