Another brilliant story by Phillip K Dick.

What stood out to me is that businesses scan your eyes, and immediately recall your history. Knowing a little about scanning tech, this is very possible with modern day tech. Toss in NLP techniques, and there is nowhere to hide.

Fortunately or unfortunately larger forces are intervening, and at the same the high tech world is collapsing under its own weight.

Hello all. I didn't see any posts about this so I thought I would start one. CBS New York has posted this article, Exclusive: ‘Digital DNA’ May Soon Be Required To Take SAT And ACT Exams. The article and accompanying video are about how New York is going to require kids to have a biometric identification card in order to take the SAT in order to avoid fraud. At the same time US News has the following article Who Should Have Access to Student Records? which states that the Federal government requires states to keep all student records about, well on just about everything and the parents aren't even allowed to read the records in many states.

So ATS, how do you feel about this because personally I think our children will be the most monitored people in the history of the world and I don't like it. These digital records will follow them for life and every mistake becomes a permanent mistake. I don't usually post in the conspiracy section; but, I thought that someone should at least bring this up. Peace.



from the USNews article: Who Should Have Access to Student Records?



At an event discussing the Data Quality Campaign report Wednesday, Rhee said students also used the information to try to out-achieve each other.

“The data can be an absolute game changer,” she says. “If you have the data, and you can invest and engage children and their families in this data, it can change a culture quickly.”


I would be very afraid of this agenda.

The data could easily be mis-interpreted and used against someone also.

The intellectuals and academics make plenty of "mistakes",
many times in their favor.

Just look at all the failures that have been created for millions of dollars.

Only the taxpayers get to pay the penalties.
 



According to a 2009 report by the Fordham University Center on Law and Information Policy, some states store student’s social security numbers, family financial information, and student pregnancy data. Nearly half of states track students’ mental health issues, illnesses, and jail sentences.Without access to their child’s data, parents have no way of knowing what teachers and others are learning about them.

The federal government is taking steps to make the data more secure, however. In December, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act was revised to give parents more control over their children’s records. According to a parent information sheet released by the government, the revisions give parents “certain rights with regard to their children’s education records, such as the right to inspect and review [their] child’s education records.” But it also allows student information to be shared without parental consent.



Notice how the two paragraphs lead away from the issue of inaccurate information.

False information can easily be entered into a database.

An open review by the victims Parents/Students would threaten any effort to inject tainted/altered information.

The whole article does not address altered/tainted information.

Dear xuenchen,

The data can be used in any way they like, once collected the rules can always change. I don't know which is worse, having correct information in their hands or incorrect information. I am concerned about the quantity and invasive nature of the information. Why does the government need to know everything about any of us, why does the government need access to all of our medical records, financial records, social media activity and our student records? They don't and they don't follow their own rules, the information should be on a "need to know" basis. Peace. By the way, glad that you found the same article and posted on it, just wanted you to know there was an existing thread.

I think we need to reach as many people as possible with these issues.

It's a serious problem.

I think we may be dealing with psychological and even psychiatric issues at the government levels involved !

I can't believe any normal people would try this type of control method and then steer it into a "privacy" issue as a reason to keep it a big secret.

We may be dealing with psychopaths and sociopaths rather than genuine education.

Remember they are getting big money from grants for studies and reports and even the general methods used.

Dear xuenchen,

I agree completely which is why I write about these things on my blog and when I see something is missed, I will post it on ATS. I highly recommend EPIC's website on electronic privacy issues. I will not provide my blog address as that is prohibited by ATS and I am not in any way affiliated with EPIC (Electronic Privacy Information Center). Keep up, keeping an eye up. Peace.
