NEW YORK'S DATA COLLECTION TRACKS FROM PRESCHOOL TO CAREER AGE~STATES' LETTER TO DUNCAN DECEPTIVE & DISINGENUOUS
"Developed by the New York State Education Department, funded by the federal government and promoted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the P-20 (preschool to age 20) data collection program allows government entities to share and access records for every student in the state with the overall goal of monitoring individuals from childhood to death."
"The only way to truly protect our children’s data is to restore local control of education that has been usurped by the unconstitutional presence and actions of the US Department of Education. Until that ultimate goal is reached, we will work to remove each of our states from the state longitudinal data systems and demand genuine state developed standards and assessments, instead of name changes, cosmetic adjustments to the Common Core standards, and deceptive reassurances about state control of test data."
