Parents and privacy experts are blasting a new national database that compiles personal student information for educational companies that contract with public schools.
New York State officials, working with the city, have already uploaded students’ names, addresses, test scores, learning disabilities, attendance and disciplinary records into the inBloom database, according to the Daily News
via NBC New York.
Just plain irresponsible; what is wrong with these people?
It’s getting scary. There’s a video from the ACLU that shows what it’s like when everyone gets to know everything about you. When it’s all connected you will cease to be. Just another blob of mass toiling away.
When everything does down on your permanent record how do you ever rise above? Are we going to take children at 7 years old and tell them that they will never amount to anything beyond working at Target?
We’re heading into a bizarre mix of Brave New World and Gattaca.
