Abstract

The aims of this study were to 1) Analyze the learning process commonly applied in high schools, 2) Analyze the up-to-date learning process needed in high schools. This study used a quantitative descriptive approach. The study was conducted in 3 regencies in Indonesia, precisely in West Sumatra, such as Tanah Datar, Limapuluh Kota, and Agam. The participants of the research were high school teachers. The results of this study were 1) 99% of teachers from Agam, Tanah Datar, and Limapuluh Kota regencies stated that their learning had so far contained no local wisdom values. This was due to the burden of a large number of subject matters, by then the teachers only focused on cognitive aspects, 2) 88% of teachers from Agam, Tanah Datar, and Limapuluh Kota regencies stated that it was very important to include local wisdom in learning. This is due to the loss of local character among the students. Local wisdom had become an unfamiliar thing for students. Besides that, many teachers or educators were also not accustomed to addressing local wisdom in their teaching.
