Yes! As a matter of fact, they depend upon it. Every child enrolled in the public school is put into the longitudinal database connected with P-21 and Common Core. This allows the education system to collect up to 400 different data points on each child. These are shared among state agencies without parents’ knowledge or consent. Many believe that this will allow for the collection of all children’s social and emotional data to measure compliance for their future social credit system.
Statewide longitudinal data systems will follow students from preschool through aged twenty, and will collect academic scores as well as emotional intelligence scores based on data gleaned from SEL assessments built around curricula aligned to CASEL’s 5-Core Competencies. It is not difficult to contrast these goals with China’s current Social Credit System.
