Ing Ngarsa Sung Tuladha, Ing Madya Mangun Karsa, Tut Wuri Handayani

His name is actually Raden Mas Soewardi Soerjaningrat ( Ki Hajar Dewantara, some written with the Javanese language ‘Ki Hajar Dewantoro’  born in Yogyakarta, May 2, 1889 -died in Yogyakarta, 26 April 1959 at the age of 69 years, here in after abbreviated as "Soewardi" or "KHD" ) which is one of the descendants of Nyi Ageng Serang is Indonesia's independence movement activist, columnist, politician, and pioneer of education for the natives of Indonesia from the Dutch colonial era. He is the founder of Taman Siswa University, an institution that provides opportunities for the indigenous masses to get the right to education as well as the gentry or the Dutch people.
Ki Hajar Dewantara, educators native Indonesia, see more on the lives of human psychology. He said human beings have faculties ofcreativity, initiative and work. Development demands a whole person development of all resources equally. Development that is too focused on one power alone will result in incomplete development as human beings. He said that the education that emphasizes the intellectual aspect of sheer will only alienate students from the community. And it turns out education until now only emphasizes the development of creativity, and less attention to the development of taste and intention though. If continued would make man less humane or inhumane.
