Data Mining of Our Children

 
 

What the US Dept. Education - Center for Technology in Learning Has Planned

The Common Core website asserts that “There are no data collection requirements of states adopting the Common Core State Standards,” but the actions of the Department of Education prove otherwise.


Secretary of Education Arne Duncan summarized the Obama administration’s vision, explaining:


We want to see more states build comprehensive systems that track students from pre-K through college and then link school data to workforce data. We want to know whether Johnny participated in an early learning program and completed college on time and whether those things have any bearing on his earnings as an adult.

All 50 states have had statewide longitudinal databases in place to track their students’ scores on assessments for the past decade. Yet the authors of the Common Core are clear: the success of the standards hinges on the increased collection of student data. Every state that agreed to the Common Core in order to receive Race to the Top (RTTT) funding committed “to design, develop, and implement statewide P–20 (preschool through workforce) longitudinal data systems.
