HB1604 Amendment language to facilitate Outcome Based Education in New Hampshire. WARNING!

WARNING: Data-Mining Behavior on NH Students by the NH Dept of Ed

The New Hampshire State Dept. of Education is now tracking your child’s BEHAVIORS:

Do they get along with others? That is SUBJECTIVE
Are they ATTENTIVE in class? That is SUBJECTIVE
Are they going to class “motivated to learn”? That is SUBJECTIVE

These were things that the teacher used to note on the report card, but were not included in GRADING.

Now this information is going to the STATE database which is a defacto NATIONAL database.

You can look at the list of information the State is now gathering on students. NH teachers have expressed concern about where the information goes once they log it into the computers at their school.
Every parent should file a right to know request with the NHDoE to look at all information that has been uploaded on your children AND MONITOR it.

There was a subcommittee hearing today on HB 301, allowing a parent to elect not to include their child in the unique pupil identification system or other information database maintained by the department of education.

It’s important to also note that NH DoE Michael Schwartz is a consultant ($269,390 federal grant recipient through Demonstrated Success, Rye, NH) who testified on the database.

The best thing to do is to support HB301. That way if you want to elect to take your child out of the database, you have that option.
Send and e-mail telling the reps and senators to support HB301 so we can opt out children out of tracking our children.

The NH schools are transitioning to the dumbed down workforce development model.
Public schools used to offer a liberal arts education focused on the academics and arts.
Under Obama’s redesign, Public education is being redesigned to a workforce training model.

This kind of workforce training model could be seen in European countries like Germany. It’s also important to note that their students do not finish top in the world on the international tests.

The purpose is to track students to a career or college. That’s why the govt. needs information on their character, etc.
All of this information is then fed into the data base.
In Londonderry administrators were talking to kindergarteners about career choices recently.
In some states like Texas, legislation has been passed that will put a child in middle school on a “career” path.

In order to determine where your child should go in life, they need to collect a large amount of information.

Marc Tucker who sat on the Common Core development team spells it all out here.

Note the time/date of the Tucker letter. This was tried under the Clinton admin. but was never fully implemented. Under the Obama admin. they are actively driving the agenda now.

Common Core supporters will never put their own kids in a public school. This kind of dumbed down workforce training isn’t good enough for their kids.

Bill Gates’ kids do not attend public schools.
Obama’s kids do not attend public schools
Soon to be “Former US Sect. of Ed” Arne Duncan’s kids don’t attend public schools.

They go to elite private schools where the focus is on academics so their kids can go in any direction they want in life.
