In 2000, for example, ten IKIPs (Institut Keguruan dan Ilmu Pendidikan or Institute of Education and Teacher Training) in Indonesia changed their names into university. Accordingly, discussing critically educational philosophy and aim in a nation-state is very important and should always be sought for in order to realize the critical society, especially related to the question of how this nation-state will be built. Every nation-state has contextual education philosophy and aim, which is particular in its own historical and social context. Indonesia, as a nation-state, has unique educational philosophy and aim, and it is the next generation’s job to revitalize and implement it in the real educational praxis. This paper tries to discuss the position and role of LPTK (Lembaga Pendidikan Tenaga Kependidikan or Teacher Training Institutions) as one of higher educational institutions that is responsible to educate the professional teachers in Indonesia. It is imperative to reformulate and revitalize the educational philosophy and aim of LPTK, especially related to preparing the candidate of such institution participants — who will be the teachers and educators in the future — in order that educational development in Indonesia can educate the people in one side, and can strengthen self identity in other side as civilized, advanced, modern, prosperous, and social justice nation.

KEY WORDS: National philosophy, educational aim, teacher training institutions, and reformulate the position and role of institution.
