Tracking Children

Have you heard about the Common Core  problem? Basically,  it's an initiative between the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State School Officers meant to 'prepare our children for college and the workforce'. Sounds great, right?  Not so fast.
Apparently, this Common Core Initiative has circumvented the Legislature Branch and comes straight from the Executive Branch (funded by Obama's Stimulus package) to bribe states into constructing 'longitudinal data systems (LDS) to collect data on public-school students." Common Core's technological project is "merely one part of a much broader plan by the federal government to track individuals from birth through their participation in the workforce."

Figure it out yet?

What they are doing is tracking your child.

Health care history. Income information. Religious affiliation. Nicknames. Bus stop times. Disciplinary history Voting status. Blood type. And whether or not your child finished their homework.

Invasive enough for you? Over 400 data points they want collected! And the possible methods? Creepy.

Oh, and not only did money for this invasion of privacy program come from Obama's stimulus, it also came from grants from the Gates Foundation. Yup- Bill & Melinda Gates are getting in on the action too. Oh, and so is Google. And even a division of the conservative Rupert Murdoch's News Corp built the database infrastructure. A non-profit start-up, inBloom, Inc. will operate this database and monitor everything from health-care history to voter registration status and homework completion.

And the way the initiative is written, parental permission to track your child is not needed. Nope. The way it is worded, (because the DEA went behind Congress's back to alter the FERPA privacy laws) they only need permission from an 'authorized representative' or 'specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes.'

School districts and state governments are pimping out highly personal data. From Michelle Malkin:

"Edu-tech nosy-bodies are using the Common Core assessment boondoggle as a Trojan horse to collect and crunch massive amounts of personal student data for their own social justice or moneymaking ends. Reminder, Nine states have entered into contracts with inBloom: Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Louisiana, and New York. Countless other vendors are salivating at the business possibilities in exploiting public school students."

 Do you want you child's personal information bought and sold online?
No- then there is a way to opt-out.
Ask for it. 
A grass-roots movement is springing up across the country to stop this massive information data collection.
Oklahoma's House of Representatives (HB 1989) recently unanimously voted to prohibit the release of confidential student data. (Go Go Oklahoma!)

Go- now- download the  opt-out form. Get knowledgeable about what is going on. Then stop it.
Unless you like your information and privacy...not so private.


  1. Scary stuff. Hopefully the message will get out so more states will follow Oklahoma's example.

    Glad I moved out of Georgia. Arkansas is next door to OK, hopefully they'll follow suit here.

  2. Exactly why I posted about it. More people need to know what is going on. Maybe they will get their heads out of the sand and quit being sheeple.

    It's not just Democrats. It not just Republicans.
    It's across the board. And it's scary.

  3. Feels like 1984! Frightening! I would say "2016 is right around the corner" but I'm not enamored of Congress right now, either...

  4. I think there might be an economic collapse before anything else. But this 'tracking kids' thing? Yeah, it is definitely scary shiite.
