The establishment of the Basic Education Doctoral Program is based on the philosophy that basic education is the foundation for instilling character and identity values in children from their early age. Early education is a strategic effort in developing Indonesian citizens during their golden age of childhood. This golden age ranges from 0-5 years up until the age of 6-8 years or early grade elementary school. The Basic Education Doctoral Program at Universitas Negeri Jakarta focuses on preparing human resources who are experts in basic education with the understanding of cross-cultural urban education, i.e., the cultural diversity in the Special Capital Region of Jakarta that comes from various ethnic groups, which can promote the values of tolerance and unity in Indonesia. The Doctoral Program prepares lecturers who can then teach students of master’s degree in elementary education and elementary and junior high school teachers and experts in the management of basic education in various education offices. The Basic Education Doctoral Program also prepares the graduates to become consultants, leaders, and managers in basic education. The management of basic education in the digital era follows the industrial revolution 4.0. It has implications for strengthening the 21st-century skills by mainstreaming curriculum development, learning processes, and assessment processes, related to the 6Cs (Creative and Innovative, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Critical Thinking and Problem solving, Computational Logic) in the Indonesian educational system.
