Sometimes, you need to end the week with a good joke! Nothing better than today’s statement by Mr Vasant Bunwaree.
The Minister of Education has announced that the restrictions ‘implemented’ on the newly distributed tablets will be removed if and only if the students prove that they can be responsible about the usage of those ‘educational’ tablets.
haha, lol, rofl, lmao…
None of these words usually used to show someone’s amusement can actually express my state right now! What he did not tell is that they are incompetent in their job and can’t assume their responsibilities. So, instead of trying to fix things, they prefer to stay away from providing the kids with a new challenge. As announced at first, restrictions were implemented to prevent the students from accessing social networks and other web sites. The new generation of kids did not just stand around doing nothing.
Some weeks back, the first tablets were ‘jail-broken’/ hacked / compromised or whatever bad-word the authorities used to qualify the action of some of the brillant kids. Kudos to them! Personally, I find that they brought shame to the rotten system!
As per reports in the local media, it was as simple as :
A bad political move
IMHO, the government ( yet again) finds itself in a very embarrassing situation especially when there are high concerns about the security of the new biometric identity cards. Only a few days back, the same minister was severely condemning the action of those students who bypassed the security system of an educational tablet for other personal uses. Those same uses which were at that time qualified as ‘unauthorized’ and not in the initial agreement between the government and the students. Suddenly, now the minister is backing up with today’s announcement. At one time, he even mentioned punishing those college students who dared to turn the authorities into stupid donkeys!
The problems with the tablets are not something new. More than a month back, several problems were noted in those tablets and even none of the insurance companies wanted to insure those cheap tablets. Read more in this post here.
I repeat, again, giving away free tablets was not a wise decision.
Bane incompétents, lev paké aller ene fois!
Bon weekend to everyone!
