4. Gee. Aren't corporations pupils?

People who deregulate privacy on behalf of corporations are toadies to the richest people in the world.

That so-and-so Duncan is doing his best to lower the floor to where whale dung rests, familiar territory for Rupert and his whaleish chums.



Educational agencies can now “authorize” other
“representatives” such as unrelated government
departments and external contractors including test
developers and “research” groups. Parents and other
student advocates are concerned that these changes
may open up the possibility that student information
will be handed over to for-profit companies without
parent permission or knowledge.

Thank you for the heads-up, madfloridian. This is EPIC, seeing how the corporations now seem to have two parties of their own.
