Cradle to Grave Ramps up in PA

Someone just emailed me this article that last May, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran an article entitled, “New system to track student data from preschool to career.”

From the article:

“More than 15 years ago, Pennsylvania students taking state tests didn’t even have to put their names on them.

Now the state is in the midst of developing a sophisticated data system that will track students from preschool to elementary and secondary education to postsecondary education to the work force.”

“Tracking student progress from birth through college helps teachers in the classroom, helps principals manage and improve their schools, and helps parents better understand the unique educational needs of their child,” Mr. [Arne] Duncan stated in a news release.”

Yep, tracking as much data as possible is sooooo helpful, especially when you want to know how many decayed teeth children have so you know which are the healthy and sick ones in classrooms. Move along, nothing to see here. The Department of Education can be fully trusted to only have our children’s best welfare in mind. It’s not like they’re working with Obama’s healthcare system that will give priority support to healthy people and move the elderly sick ones into end of life planning.

Socialism is all about control and centralized planning.
