This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

And of course private schools and homeschoolers clearly had no input when their state adopted this garbage! I am so upset with my state for being pulled into this. :(
This is scary stuff!
Personally Identifiable Information
..... will be ‘extracted ‘from each student, which will include the following data: parents names, address, Social Security Number, date of birth, place of birth, mothers maiden name, etc.
according to the SLDS brief,
“Sensitive Information will also be extracted, which delves into the intimate details of students lives:
1. Political affiliations or beliefs of the student or parent;
2. Mental and psychological problems of the student or the students family;
3. Sex behavior or attitudes;
4. Illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating, and demeaning behavior;
5. Critical appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents have close family relationships;
6. Legally recognized privileged or analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians, and ministers;
7. Religious practices, affiliations, or beliefs of the student or the students parent; or
8. Income (other than that required by law to determine eligibility for participation in a program or for receiving financial assistance under such program).
Students personal information will be submitted to a database managed by inBloom, Inc., a private organization funded largely by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The fact that Common Core Standards require childrens personal information to be provided to a database that can be expected to sell or share the data to unspecified companies is worrisome to many parents and educators.
It leads to total control and total tracking of the child, said Mary Black, curriculum director for Freedom Project Education, an organization that provides classical K-12 online schooling. .....It completely strips the child of his or her own privacy.
