The study uses quantitative research methods with descriptive statistics. Based on 2014 IFLS data, the research results show that informal workers still have a weak social security budget plan with an average of IDR. 317,200 every month. Informal workers only have 4% of social security, namely 87 people. The majority of informal workers have not been touched by the social security employment program due to community access to the social security institution itself.</span></em></p> Indah Sari Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Sumatera Sociological Indicators 2023-11-28 2023-11-28 2 02 208 213 Curriculum That is Not Yet Independent <p><em>The "kurikulum merdeka" and “asesmen nasional” are part of the "merdeka belajar" policy that has been gradually implemented since 2020. In terms of implementation, the readiness of regions and schools varies, as experienced in the Mentawai Islands Regency. The author is interested in examining the reality and challenges of implementing this policy. The focus of this article is, first, to describe the potential of education starting from schools, students, teacher competencies, and the allocation of education budgets. Second, to describe the results of the implementation of the "Merdeka Curriculum" and the national assessment in all elementary schools in the Mentawai Islands Regency. The method used is a literature review, with secondary data sourced from journals, books, regional education reports, and the county's educational reports. The results found are as follows: 40 elementary school students have dropped out, out of 1,322 elementary school educators, only 19.1% are certified, and 80.9% are not certified. Teachers with qualifications appropriate for their roles make up 89.4%, while those not meeting the qualifications account for 10.6%. In 2022, the county government allocated a budget of Rp 716.6 billion from the APBD for the education sector. The readiness level for the implementation of the "Merdeka Curriculum" includes 97 schools that are “mandiri belajar,” 16 schools that have “mandiri berubah”, and no schools currently “mandiri berbagi.” The student literacy achievement is the lowest in the entire Sumatera Barat region, ranking 17th out of 19 cities/counties in Sumatera Barat for numeracy achievement, while student character development achievement is still at an early stage. These conditions indicate that education and the curriculum in the Mentawai Islands Regency are not fully independent.</em></p> Bonar Situmorang Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Sumatera Sociological Indicators 2023-11-28 2023-11-28 2 02 231 237 Ecofeminist Perspective: Climate Change and its Impact on Women <p><em>Climate change is one of the environmental issues that continues to be a challenge for global life.
