More on that Horrendous Margaret Spellings cradle to grave database for students

28 September 2006 at 6:41:44 PM

I wrote about this the other day. Turns out, according to this commentary, that not only will student records be housed in a massive database that the government will administer, but also WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKPLACE AFTER COLLEGE.

The same folks who brought you Katrina Relief--Bush administration hacks and Republican party loyalists--now want their K-Street cronies to regulate the entire U.S. college and university system. These appointees and apparatchiks are proposing lock-step federal regulation and oversight over all colleges and universities--and tracking every single student's lifelong educational record--in order, they say, to better help consumers. Yeah, right.

Get this: they want to create a massive central database, a huge federal registry, that stores every single student's educational record (with enrollment information, academic performance, along with personal financial aid information) starting from kindergarten through high school, through college, and beyond into the workplace, so that they can "track" employment outcomes. Thank you, Big Brother. You can be certain that Halliburton--or one of its subsidiaries--will get a piece of that delicious pie.

The National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities and other groups have raised obvious privacy issues, especially since the Commission at one point proposed using students' Social Security numbers to link transcript information to the central database.

You must be kidding. No, Bush is behind it. They're not.

These people are unamerican.
