Ignore the Data Collection on Your Child, Nothing To See Here…

PolitiChicks.comWe’ve heard it all, haven’t we?

The federal government will not be getting data from schools.

Schools won’t be sharing information about your child with anyone, including the federal government.

Don’t worry, your children’s data is safe at the school level.

Common Core opponents who are worried about data sharing are conspiracy theorists.

We knew the data collection on our kids would be going from school level to state level data hubs, and then would ultimately be shared with 3rd party “stakeholders” (including the federal government) who have an “educational interest”.  So for all the naysayers in this argument, here is an article from Edweek.org; the most important piece is this paragraph:

K-12 school systems in more than a dozen cities and counties have quietly begun linking children’s educational records with data from other government agencies, covering everything from children’s mental-health status to their history of child-welfare placements and their involvement in the juvenile-justice system.

Proponents of this “integrated data system” point out that this gives a more “holistic view” of a child’s experiences, including education.

To me it sounds like this is giving the government a lot more intrusive data on how and why a child is who he or she is.

Just what every parent needs – a personal, behavioral, attitudinal, experiential and “educational” file on their child from life in the womb to the tomb.
