By Anita B. Hoge and Gen Yvette Sutton:
We are fighting together to keep our country free and protect our children from outside predators. Our Pennsylvania group released a Press Release on November 21, 2014, that explained to the country that the U.S. Department of Education through the National Center of Education Statistics and its clone, the IES, Institute for Educational Sciences, are collecting and harvesting our children’s personally identifiable information, including raw psychological profiles, without our knowledge and without our consent. Our children are in eminent danger and risk when this personally identifiable information is released to outside predators. It must be stopped.
Recent coverage of Pearson testing contractor monitoring individual students taking the PARCC test has heightened this realization that our children’s personally identifiable information is not only being shared and monitored, but this data is used to make millions of dollars for corporate America. They get the data for free, but PENNSYLVANIA already contracted with multiple contractors including Pearson to develop and implement spy technology.
The most unconscionable action taken against our children was the Obama Executive Order, 12866, that gutted FERPA, Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, allowing our children’s personally identifiable information to flow to outside contractors. Obama referred to this tsunami of data to vendors, businesses, foundations, higher ed, and corporations as “unlocking” the data. President Obama has stripped our children of their privacy and undressed their psyches for ANYONE to track and traffick attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions for research and reeducation programs. DNA sequences are also up for grabs.
But the Obama Executive Order did more yet. The unlocking of this data sharing contributed to the creation of a state longitudinal data system in every state that the NCES/IES funded “and created a “unique National ID” number that is tracking every person in the United States. Pennsylvania was a model state that developed this privacy invading “womb to workplace” system monitoring individuals from birth through retirement including collecting data on wages. The federal government is collecting this personally identifiable information on its citizens. But worse, the interventions to align our children’s attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions to Common Core, SCANS interpersonal skills are totalitarian.
President Obama’s Executive Order 12866 is a revolving open door for child abuse and child endangerment. Parents, call Congress again and again to overrule Obama’s EO 12866 and stop the abuse of our children. Congress, listen, we parents are speaking. This data tracking, trafficking, and psychological treatment (RTI) must stop. By the way, “no one is exempt from arbitrary rule” – including your own children.
First, we parents must OPT OUR CHILDREN OUT OF ALL STATE AND FEDERAL TESTING. We parents will not allow the state and local district to track this personally identifiable information including psychological profiles on our children to be trafficked to outside vendors.
We parents do not have to look at the tests. We do not have to sign a disclosure statement. This is where the child abuse begins. In fact, we parents CANNOT OPT A CHILD INTO THIS CHILD ENDANGERMENT. Pennsylvania has NCES, National Center for Education Statistics, contracts that reveal that they are disclosing the data. This is illegal. No one can force us to endanger our children. Data tracking and trafficking of personally identifiable information is illegal. This is The Parent Spring! We will protect our children! (Attached is a list of violations to support our position and was given to the Pennsylvania House Education Committee Hearings on February 12, 2015.)
Second, we parents must stop the state longitudinal data collection that starts on the local level. We must Opt Out of directory information. We will remove our child’s unique ID number from all of his/her papers. We will not allow the school to use the unique ID for anything relating to our children.
Third, we parents demand that schools cease to use computers that monitor all movements, data clicks, and surveillance of our children in software programs. We demand paper and pencil. The traditional way is the only way right now to protect our children.
Fourth, we parents must call and call our representatives and ask them to join The Parent Spring.
Note to our children: We love you so very much. We shall protect you. xoxo, Mom and Dad

This letter is to inform_______________________________________ (school district) that I,_________________________________(parent or guardian) refuse to allow my daughter/son
___________________________________________________________________________, to take any state or federal tests that are tracking and trafficking the personally identifiable information on my children and my family.
I refuse to have my children involved with the Response to Intervention teams that are monitoring my child/ren and entering personal data into the PIMS data base that is released to unknown predators.
This information is leaving my local district that cannot secure the privacy rights of my children.
The personally identifiable information on my child/ren is being shared and harvested without my permission and without my knowledge of who has access to our personally identifiable information.
These actions by my local school district, entering data into the PIMS data base, the NCES/IES national data base, and the Obama Executive Order 12866 amount to child endangerment. There are no protections for my children from outside predators.
It is my duty to protect my children.
