This national character education integratively combines the generic and specific potentials to solve and to face the problems of life. The value-based life-skills education in the elementary school is underlying the behaviour, characteristics, and attitude that is based on the succeed of students’ future life.The giving of universal values such as honesty, respect, manners, hardworking, tolerance, and others become the core study for teachers’ insights during their friendly interaction with students, for that reason, education in schools are so consciously designed and managed that the instructional process for students evoke the attitude and behaviour learning through the nation character education. Many inhibition factors that are faced by the school in implementing the education, internally in the school or externally especially in understanding and teacher’s competence in developing nation character education. It is all because not only a simple thing to change teachers’ paradigm in implementing the managing model of conventional learning that been rooted in their teaching attitude.The finding shows that (1) according to the analysis of Indonesian Language SK-KD, the national characters evoke in terms of loving to read, patriotism, respecting others, tolerance, friendship, caring for others, communicative, religious, honesty, discipline, creative, perseverance, confidence, curiosity, bravery, and critical; (2) the character values are not explicitly stated yet in the Lesson Plan for many kinds of elementary schools; (3) in the religion- and multicultural-based schools, the character implementation has been planned and accustomed in the class and school environment; (4) in the religion- and multicultural-based schools, teachers’ behaviour in implementing the character values is routinely done, conditioned, and customization; (5) in the traditional elementary schools and the potential nation character education that is not stated yet in the Lesson Plan, teachers only insert it in the learning process.
