The popular website DrudgeReport has linked to a NY Post Article How the Feds Are Tracking Your Kid. Here’s a sample:
Would it bother you to know that the federal Centers for Disease Control had been shown your daughter’s health records to see how she responded to an STD/teen-pregnancy-prevention program? How about if the federal Department of Education and Department of Labor scrutinized your son’s academic performance to see if he should be “encouraged” to leave high school early to learn a trade? Would you think the government was intruding on your territory as a parent?
It’s worth reading the whole op-ed as it exposes some of the privacy issues surrounding the national standards push.
