This is totally unacceptable.
But this is, sadly, what the Education Industry wants to implement eventually in all schools. Public, charter, or home schools.
Data mining of the children. Not to mention providing more and more money for the data miners, as well as the Big Ed corporations who get money out of shilling their programs, tests, textbooks, etc.

This has nothing to do with “improving education.” This has everything to do with making money for the gazillionaires, as well as producing good little citizens who will work for whatever the corporations deign to give them.

Well, I can dream, can’t I? {{Sigh}}
