Nevada dad John Eppolito got a bad case of sticker shock when he asked state education officials to see the permanent records of his four children.
He was told it would cost $10,194.
A Lake Tahoe-area real estate agent by trade and a fierce opponent of Common Core, Eppolito was concerned about Nevada's recent decision to join a multi-state consortium that shares students data. He wanted to know exactly what information had been compiled on his school-age kids. But state officials told him he would have to pay fees and the cost of programming and running a custom report.
The problem is that I cant stop them from collecting the data, Eppolito told FoxNews.com. I just wanted to know what it [collected data] was. It almost seems impossible. Certainly $10,000 is enough reason to prevent a parent from getting the data.
Nevada has spent an estimated $10 million in its seven-year-old System of Accountability Information in Nevada, known as SAIN. Data from county school systems is uploaded nightly to a state database, and, under the new arrangement, potentially shared with other counties and states.

Nevada is ALMOST as BLANKED Up as it’s neighbor CaliPornia, think if it how did it(Nevada) get this way(Poor Border “Control”),(too many CaliPornia “Transplants”)?
I wonder if it is the same price for other agencies, schools, colleges and commercial enterprises to obtain that data. For $10,000 might it be cheaper to create a company that gathers the data and then sells copies to the child’s parents for a lesser amount?
spreads like a virus
SAIN. More like INSANE.
The very next entry into the permanent records should be “WITHDRAWN”.
There you go. Where's my $10,094.00 ?
Paying the Education Department lawyers’ retainer fee up front.
The problem is that I cant stop them from collecting the data,
Yes you can, it is called private or home school.
Careful, Bammy will want you to work on his unhealthycare website.
Might as well, just think, a job where you can expend little effort and keep dragging it out as long as you want but never produce real results.
Mr. Epolito already paid for the detailed report he requested with the taxes funding the Common Core disaster.
HAHAHA! He actually think his kid belongs to himself.
