We’re from the Government and We’re Here to Screw You

CHARGED

These aren’t the records you’re looking for:

Nevada dad John Eppolito got a bad case of sticker shock when he asked state education officials to see the permanent records of his four children.

He was told it would cost $10,194.

A Lake Tahoe-area real estate agent by trade and a fierce opponent of Common Core, Eppolito was concerned about Nevada’s recent decision to join a multi-state consortium that shares students’ data. He wanted to know exactly what information had been compiled on his school-age kids. But state officials told him he would have to pay fees and the cost of programming and running a custom report.

“The problem is that I can’t stop them from collecting the data,” Eppolito told FoxNews.com. “I just wanted to know what it [collected data] was. It almost seems impossible. Certainly $10,000 is enough reason to prevent a parent from getting the data.”

Did you catch the part where Eppolito is an opponent of Common Core?

Sue the pants off these petty tyrants.

"We here at Big Government can't provide the data you need from our multi-million-dollar computer system." This reminds me of something....

“The problem is that I can’t stop them from collecting the data,”

Sure you can. Just pull them out of that school. They'll get a better education in a Private/Parochial or Home School experience anyway.
Spend your money on your kids. Not the school staff.

Unfortunately, most of us don't get vouchers if we pull the kids out of school. It's tough to work enough to pay the property tax that pays for public school, then turn around and either pay for private school or spend more time home-schooling.

but be prepared to start with a $10,000 retainer for the lawyer. lose, lose for the common folk. laws are not made for us. they are made for the powerful, the bureaucracy and the lawyers.

Pretty sure a private school or in-home tutor would be a better use of the money.

Times like this, I'm really glad to be single.
