Time To Opt Out of Creepy Fed Ed Data-Mining Racket

Even if parents submit opt-out/disclosure forms, does anyone out there think it would be honored by this very corrupt government? That is just another way of "appeasing the masses." Say anything, let them sign anything. We, of course, will do what we want anyway!

So you're implying that the opt-out.disclosure form isn't worth the paper it's written on? How can that be so? Dear Leader would never go against the wishes of the parents.

Yeah, you're probably right. The word of the King is as good as gold. L.O.L....

When parents submit a probably worthless opt-out form, they identify themselves as dissidents. No doubt their data will go into another database for special scrutiny. Meanwhile, NSA is happily building a data collection and storage facility in Utah that will be able to store all the signal intelligence in the world -- bank and credit-card records; court records; DMV records; video feeds from security cameras, satellites, and drones; Internet traffic; phone traffic. . . And it's working on computers that will be able to analyze all this data and pry open encrypted information, some of which NSA has kept for years in hope of eventually decrypting it.

Matt,

Very good points! Food for thought.
Last week, I reported on the federal government's massive new student-tracking database, which was created as part of the nationalized Common Core standards scheme.

The bad news: GOP "leadership" continues to ignore or, worse, enable this Nanny State racket (hello, Jeb Bush).

The good news: An independent grassroots revolt outside the Beltway bubble is swelling. Families are taking their children's academic and privacy matters out of the snoopercrats' grip and into their own hands. You can now download a Common Core opt-out/disclosure form to submit to your school district, courtesy of the Truth In American Education group: http://truthinamericaneducation.com/uncategorized/ccss-parent-opt-out-form/
