The new Commission on Evidence-based Policymaking is being urged (by Gates and the other foundations/corporations that want access to more and more of our children’s data) to establish a national student-unit record system that would allow government tracking of citizens from school throughout their careers. Attached is APP’s statement explaining what’s wrong with this.

The deadline for submitting comments on this dangerous scheme is November 14. Please submit a short comment opposing any sort of national student database! Thank you.
