Was: Hari Anak Nasional

Yesterday, July 23rd, 2003 (all? not all I think) Indonesian children celebrated Hari Anak Nasional. TV stations broadcasted many news about this. Govt’s concepts and plans for kids, coming actions, etc. Once, I found a fact about children’s education. And that’s a true story.

Education has become hot issues for years. I still remember the “Wajib Belajar 9 Tahun”, “Aku Anak Sekolah”, “Bebas Tiga Buta”, etc. What about the street children, getting money by begging or becoming street musicians? Ten thousand rupiah will be enough for food, yeah, at least for meal. School uniforms, books, stationary are quite expensive. Are school uniforms so necessary?
Few days ago, I got a counter argument (from TV news) for that question. By wearing school uniforms, there will be no differences who is rich and poor. All the same, equal. And by having the same uniform, the students will have more solidarity, having the concept of equality.
But that will be different when time to wear new school uniforms comes. There will be new and old school uniforms. And I’m sure jealousy is there. Well, too complicated huh? Hehehe.. I’m not an educational expert. Happy National Children’s day! How did you celebrate it what you’re a child?
