New York State Authorities Outsourcing Data Collection On School Kids

“New York state authorities are outsourcing data collection on school kids. The program, which is to be launched state-wide, is supposed to gather information on students starting from the age of five to better “tailor education” to the needs of children.

New York hired a non-profit private contractor inBloom, funded by the Bill Gates Foundation, as the gatekeeper of this data.

The student database called EngageNY, which is a strong proponent of Common Core, will be shared with InBloom’s “partners” prior to being released to other third parties.

EngageNY’s spokesman, Tom Dunn, announced “The full data set (names and addresses) will be shared securely with our partners about two months prior to the full release.” Yet the information will not be released to the public, just private third parties and government agencies.  (This Tom Dunn is not our Tom Dunn. )

Seven states have backed out of similar programs with inBloom due to privacy concerns. New York and Illinois are the only states currently working with the data-mining firm to better commoditize children.”

More from Charlotte Iserbyt:

“Now parents, understandably, will want to get into tax-funded charter schools, and tax-funded private and religious schools, not knowing that they are jumping from the frying pan into the fire. What a brilliant scheme (dialectic) to crash the public school system. Just what Lou Gerstner, ex-CEO of IBM, called on President Obama to do in two WSJ articles: bring down all 16,000 school districts. Why would Gerstner and his buddies want to do such a thing? There are many articles explaining this school choice enigma at by Iserbyt and Hoge and others, click here.

Because public schools have elected boards which are a hindrance to the corporate fascist plan to implement their limited learning for lifelong labor (Soviet/Cuban school to work system) called for by Carnegie Corp. in 1934 in its little book “Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies”. Go to: in type “conclusions” into the search engine.

That Mom in the video out of New York State is really smart as a tack; very articulate. She understands EXACTLY what is happening; exactly.

My suggestion to solve this problem follows:

Instead of focusing on Communist Core, which I admit is horrible but nothing new; just has a new label, and trying to so-call “clean it up” through legislation, etc (which may well take years, not months), parents should join with the public education establishment and fight the tax-funded school choice agenda.

Such a move would double their activist numbers and could, possibly, be far more effective than fighting Communist Core, a battle which excludes public school teachers.

There is only one issue that both parents and public school teachers agree on, and that is the dangers of tax-funded school choice with unelected boards. The two groups may dislike the tax-funded school choice for different reasons, but stopping the tax-funded school choice is far more important than stopping Communist Core.

What our good people MUST understand is that even if they manage to stop Communist Core, which is most unlikely, if they don’t stop the tax-funded school choice/charters, when they exit the public school system looking for relief from what that great Mom is talking about, and move into one of the tax-funded private options out there, including charters, they are going to find their children up against the same problem that great Mom is talking about with In-Bloom, AND also up against the Communist Core they thought they had killed back when their children were in the public schools.


Because the tax-funded entity: charter, publicly-funded religious, private, or home school will be MANDATED to use IN-Bloom and will be mandated to use Communist Core.

Why will that be worse than the present situation in the public schools?

Because that great Mom in the New York video, and all the other great Moms fighting Communist Core and In Bloom WILL NO LONGER HAVE ANY SAY IN ANYTHING GOING ON IN THEIR TAX-FUNDED SCHOOL.


Because there will be no elected officials to whom they can complain. There will be no elected school boards that represent ALL the tax-paying voters in a municipality.”
