Charlotte Thomson IserbytWhat Cit­i­zens Can Do

Ani­ta Hoge’s ground­break­ing arti­cle, “The Great­est Christ­mas Present to Amer­i­ca 2014,” pub­lished yes­ter­day on abc­sof­dumb­down is now also post­ed on NewsWith­Views. Ani­ta has now fol­lowed up with some impor­tant activism. She advises:

My arti­cle gives a link for every state to look up their Nation­al Cen­ter for Edu­ca­tion Sta­tis­tics (NCES) grant for a state lon­gi­tu­di­nal data sys­tem that uses a “nation­al unique ID” and con­nects to the nation­al data ware­house. This is a “womb to work­place” sys­tem that mon­i­tors indi­vid­u­als cre­at­ing a com­plete gov­ern­ment dossier includ­ing atti­tudes, val­ues, and beliefs.
