Following is a video describing how wonderful it will be for educators to have personal information about your child. PHOOEY! At one time such information was considered
harmful because it labels children.
What information is being collected?
The videos show you some of the information. But, if this is all that is
being collected, why are parents not allowed to view the data collected?
If a parent is not allowed to view the data, it cannot be good for the child.
Who is the PEIMS collector in your child’s school? What information are they collecting?
NOTHING THAT IS KEPT SECRET FROM PARENTS SHOULD BE SUPPORTED.
Parents, what data is your school collecting and what has already been collected that will hurt your child now and/or in the future. Everything from medications a child takes, who might have been absent the same day as your child, number of tardies,
any comments a teacher or counselor or administrator might have recorded. No matter who was at fault or who was defending themselves, violent behavior could be recorded if your child is involved in even a push or shove incident.
But schools are not allowed to inform teachers if a child has AIDS. So every child that bleeds has to be treated as if they have AIDS. I wonder where this data is stored.
Students are not the only ones who have data being collected about them. Teachers, even administrators. Paranoid attitude? Not at all. Don’t be fooled by all this smooshing about how wonder and helpful this data collecting is.
