Two days ago, a teacher wrote on Facebook that his/her school has received a notice from the Education Bureau asking them to set up a “national education file” for each student. The teacher worries that the future of students will be hurt if they are not “patriotic” enough.
Jillsandy Ho: This is the message from my teacher friend. The wolf CY Leung lies. National education had been started secretly. Don’t be a silent accomplice. See you tonight!
Name (blurred): My school has received a notice from the Education Bureau. From now on, students’ participation on national education activities will have to be entered into the database of the Education Bureau, which will be used in grade promotion and school changing. It means that every student will have a “national education file”, which will probably hurt one’s educational prospect if one is not patriotic enough!
National education has already reached this step, do you believe that the government will discuss its cancellation 3 years later?
(The next two paragraphs are protest info.)
Here’s an English guideline on using this national education database: http://cdr.websams.edb.gov.hk/Files/Others/NEMP_WebSAMS%20Guidelines_E.pdf
Here’s a Chinese powerpoint on using the system: http://cdr.websams.edb.gov.hk/Files/Others/NEMP_WebSAMS_11012012.pps
Students’ performances in national education mainland programmes will be recorded and sent to the Education Bureau.
On the “national education file”, STRN, which is “student reference number” and identical to the number of either Hong Kong Birth Certificate (HKBC) or Hong Kong Identity Card (HKIC), is recorded.
古: Refuse to tour the former residence of Mao the thief, deduct 10 points; Refuse to shed tears while looking at the thief flag, deduct 5 points…Deducting points endlessly. Perhaps, when one reaches primary 6, one doesn’t have enough point to get in secondary school…
Wong: The record contains ID number, therefore, without doubt, it will follow you through life!
Eddie: National education isn’t just a curriculum. It is suspected to be a path to create personal political file. If this implements officially, our next generation will be controlled forever, horrible and dark! Good life will be isolated from them forever, are you cruel enough to let it happen?
Columnist and scholar Chin Wan: Personal political file – the Communist Party uses secret psychic record to rule its people. This is a soul-summoning card that is used to make a fool of people. After the Communist Party of East Germany was overthrown, people found that very ridiculous comments were found on their personal files. This shocked people and affected their lives – made them step into a tragic fate. For instance, people could never find good jobs. These were all because of these political files.
Lists and statistics of students who have never attended national education mainland programmes are also required to send to the Education Bureau.
Blogger Martin Oei: Hitler’s education
Yin: Under “extracurricular activities”, the option of “national education mainland activities” is listed separately. What is the intention? Catagorise students? Pull out alienation targets? If one has joined mainland activities, one is regarded as pure in composition; If not, one becomes an alienation target? This method is really communist.
Tang: I have expected the existence of this file. The political composition of an individual and a group…Ten years later, the distribution of all public resources probably requires political points.
From the Facebook of the student leader of Scholarism, Joshua Wong,
Joshua Wong: I have got info that some schools received inquiry calls from the Education Bureau asking numbers of students who brought black bands to school. (black band to against national education)
