Abstract

Family is a primary factor in shaping children's character, including their stance against corruption. Permissive family attitudes towards corrupt behavior may normalize such behavior in children. This study aims to analyze the effect of anti-corruption character education within the family on the anti-corruption attitudes of adolescents at SMA Negeri 12 Makassar. Using a quantitative survey approach, the study involved 200 students from grades X and XI. Data were analyzed using the Pearson Product Moment test, revealing a correlation coefficient of 0.398 and a t-value of 6.214, both indicating a significant positive relationship. The determination test showed that 14.8% of the variance in adolescent anti-corruption character is explained by family education, while 85.2% is influenced by other factors. These findings underscore the crucial role of family in fostering anti-corruption values and suggest that enhancing family-based educational strategies could further strengthen anti-corruption character in youth.

Keywords: Anti-corruption character education, family adolescents
