The Data Quality Campaign released its annual report on how states are doing at accomplishing their policy agenda for student data collection.
Their four policy “promises” are:
- Measure what matters.
- Make data use possible.
- Be transparent and earn trust.
- Guarantee access and protect privacy.
Talk of transparency and protecting privacy when student data is being collected without parental permission and knowledge is absolute hogwash.
This report is a call for more data mongering in every state. States need to scale back (better yet stop) the data collection they are doing and ignore the advice given in this report.
