Skip to comments.How the feds are tracking your kid (more than just watching!)

Would it bother you to know that the federal Centers for Disease Control had been shown your daughters 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 sons 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?
Under regulations the Obama Department of Education released this month, these scenarios could become reality. The department has taken a giant step toward creating a de facto national student database that will track students by their personal information from preschool through career. Although current federal law prohibits this, the department decided to ignore Congress and, in effect, rewrite the law. Student privacy and parental authority will suffer.
... on Dec. 2, the Department of Education rejected almost all the criticisms and released the regulations. As of Jan. 3, 2012, interstate and intergovernmental access to your childs personal information will be practically unlimited. The federal government will have a de facto nationwide database of supposedly confidential student information.

Maybe Congress, if it had any Gonads, could ignore the DOE and defund the entire department.
Wow, that’s frickin’ scary!
George Orwell, please call your office...
DOE is immune to HIPAA? Why am I not surprised.
Time for a doctors “black market”.
Hey, I don’t have any kids but, if they want to watch the two next door, or the three down the block or the four across the street- and make sure they’re not on my lawn...well...I say, more power to ‘em!
these people can’t help but get into every aspect of our lives in an attempt to control / dominate us
this crap must stop
HAHAHAHAHAHA- I crack myself up sometimes.
Thank you for posting this as I don’t have the patience or finess to post up. Read this and was stunned at the Obama regime, which is my usual state when it comes to all things Obummer.
For progressives (communists) the people are property of the state, especially the children who need to be trained to government standards.
Why do this to a generally successful culture? Why are they trying to divert the American self-reliance success story to something that has failed over and over?
It must be money although I’m not sure who is at the top of this heap and why they’re not content with what they have....I know...stupid comment...but I truly don’t understand the mind set.
The resources (funding) for the DOE should be transferred to border security - perhaps they can track illegals with this crack ‘control’ they intend for legal citizens.
Please make your ping list aware of this.
This is precisely why I decided to homeschool years ago.
Me thinks by now that parents should no the last safe place for their kids and grandkids is the public school. They are churning out little future Marxists unabated as we sit wondering what happened to our country. Still, what really do we do about it? Nothing. And such grooming will resume in January, unabated, right after Christmas vacation.
“parents should no by now”
How embarrassing. Forgive. “Parents should know...”
They want a lowest common denominator *chav* culture as you find in modern Britain.
How about if the federal Department of Education and Department of Labor scrutinized your sons academic performance to see if he should be encouraged to leave high school early to learn a trade? ...................................... That’s not anything new. Board of Cooperate Services took students out of school to learn at a trade school. As a former teacher, I feel it is a great idea. Our kids aren’t all cut out to be doctors, lawyers, or rocket scientists. Some people work better with their hands than their brains. One must be happy in what they are doing, if your goal is high and you have the ability to achieve it, then go for it. If its something that will make you happy, then who is to say no. Our problem in schools, as I see it, is student motivation, not Gov’t. intervention. There are vocations out there that the average student is completely unaware of, as in most cases their parents too. Its not all bad.
That’s the Democrats for you!
How’s this not a violation of HIPAA??
I’ve known for some time that the accepted practice is for newborns to be assigned a social security number before they even leave the hospital, and I thought that was scary, but a conversation I had with a young mother recently left me appalled.
She said that her baby had to go to the hospital because he was having seizures.
“Why,” I asked, “is he having seizures?”
“It’s because of the high fever he gets every time he has an immunization shot,” she replied. “It happened last time, too.”
“Why,” I prodded, “if he has seizures every time he gets one of these shots, do you keep getting them?”
“Oh,” she said, sounding alarmed, “if he doesn’t have a complete record of these immunizations by the time he’s old enough for preschool, they won’t accept him!”
God help us.
Student motivation is provided by teachers and parents, not government. And more teachers who can instill a sense of wonder and impetus about what a dedicated, determined person can accomplish are what's needed, not government agencies tracking people from cradle to the grave. Schools and parents keeping track of student progress is one thing, the federal government doing it and sharing the information within and among other agencies is not needed. I wonder how long before Johnny's and Jane's information ends up in an expanded Homeland Security agency?
----- Don't be embarassed,we all do it.
I always tell myself it's a little humility reminder.
In Feb. of 2008, Cliff Kincaid wrote in the DC Journal about “Bath-House” Barry’s Global Tax Proposal; this included the “Convention on the Rights of the Child”, as well as making the U.N. “the indispensable common house of the entire human family, through which we will seek to realize our universal aspirations for peace, cooperation and development.”
Essentially, “Bath-House” Barry wants the U.N. to raise our children.
We knew of this in Feb. of 2008....but we didn’t vote for “Bath-House” Barry because of the color of his skin./sarc.
Imagine 4 more years of Obama/democrat rule.
They way things are going, it’s possible, it’s very possible....
Bump that...and your tagline, too!
Gotta love those toddler fingerprinting drives the local cops do every year. It’s all about “safety” dontchaknow.
The purpose of HIPAA was to make patients sign there privacy rights away in order to get treated and avoid any lawsuits with what they were already doing with your medical information.
Yeah, you’re probably right.
These SOBs are going way too far.
How the feds are tracking your kid (more than just watching!)
The administration wants this data to include much more than name, address and test scores. According to the National Data Collection Model, the government should collect information on health-care history, family income and family voting status. In its view, public schools offer a golden opportunity to mine reams of data from a captive audience.
The departments eagerness to get control of all this information is almost palpable. But current federal law prohibits a nationwide student database and strictly limits disclosure of a students personal information. - So the department has determined that it can overcome the legal obstacles by simply bypassing Congress and essentially rewriting the federal privacy statute.

That has been taking place for some time now.
I guess you missed my reply to my own post. (see #10)
Off hand, I’d say you are cracking up...
Homeschooling is the most radical act any citizen/subject can do.
Doctors now fill up children’s files with their answers to personal and inappropriate questions on themselves and their families. Those files belong to the government under Deathcare.
I’m a radical then.
I seriously doubt that our nation can withstand another generation of citizens being subjected to our nation's system of socialist K-12 schools.
Since when do regs trump Congressionally enacted law? Congress has to wake up.
