THIS SHOULD BE STOPPED

11 Oct

This makes me so angry.  I read about this from treespotter, a Twitter friend of mine.  You can read the full post here.

In short, Indonesia’s Ministry of Education ( Depdiknas ) has just made available online the data of 36 million of Indonesian studentsNames, addresses and other details in XLS files. Of your children.  Your very own children.

Now I know that it’s not easy to verify this news.  Treespotter didn’t include any links for obvious reasons.  And I will do the same even if later I find the link to the files to verify this story.  But mark my words, readers, I will raise my own version of hell until I hear this issue has been resolved.  I’m just an ordinary man, but I’ll be as loud as I can about this.

If you do care about the security and safety of the kids, please raise this issue in your community as wellLet’s not be silent and watch this country become a dream for kidnappers and child molesters …!

UPDATE : I HAVE DOWNLOADED ONE XLS FILE AND VERIFY THAT THE NEWS IS INDEED TRUE. THE FILE CONTAINS THE COMPLETE NAMES AND ADDRESSES OF THE KIDS. DO WHAT YOU CAN, PEOPLE !

    OMG this is just shocking….how can they allow something like this to be available to the public? For the safety of the children this information should not be accessible by anyone but those working with the children in schools! I’m stunned by this news!

    This is really huge mistake taken by the Depdiknas. I don’t really think this is not a good idea and there’s no good reason to do that. Obviously. This is stupid.

    @gcgal Indeed, how could they act before they think ?

    @rifie I second that. Stupidity Incarnate.

    @elyse Sad, isn’t it ? It’s like this : They may think they have valid reasons for doing that. But for me, no reasons ( however good ), should be put before our children’s safety…

    Thanks for the information, the Ministry of Education officials who make this program initially have read this information, and are now following up the reports.
