 Data Mining Numbers

Dear Bill and Melinda,

I am a teacher, and I have kept a close watch on the millions of dollars you have spent for the Common Core State Standards Initiative. Most teachers and administrators are unaware the actual standards are only a small part of the education reforms you planned for our children. I have also paid close attention to the money you are pouring into data collection on our students.

When you gave $100 million dollars to inBloom to build “the cloud” to collect private data on our children, why didn’t you tell teachers and parents?

This is the United States of America. Parents and teachers have a right to know.
