By paying for 1500 madrasah, as the schools are also known, to adopt Indonesia’s national curriculum, students will receive a more traditional education in the sciences, history and humanities and not focus so heavily on studying the Koran.

Why should I have to pay a permanent levy for future flood victims if they choose to build houses in the middle of high risk flood plains? How about not building towns where floods are inevitable! An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
You can't really blame the people for building there..
Most wouldn't be aware it was a flood plain..

Why did they "allow" people to build there and why did they build the roads and other infrastructure on known flood plains.??
If anyone is to blame it's the Government for allowing them to build......
