As part of the Race To the Top Application, Delaware has proposed to, "Improve access to, and use of, the State’s robust longitudinal data system by creating a data portal with dashboards targeted to different stakeholder groups." The question here is how does this impact the privacy of our students and families? With new changes in the Family Education and Privacy Act(FERPA), parental consent is not needed to gather nor release information on the student. Detailed information about students including individual student identifiesrs can now be released to third parties. To prepare for all the information gathered on students, massive databases are being created to store this information.We believe that parents have the right to know what type of information is being collected and to whom it is being distributed to. We also believe parents have the responsibility to direct the upbringing and education of their children; and the choice to participate, or opt out, of gathering and releasing of information on their children should be a parental right.Renowned Education "Whistleblower", Beverly Eakman will provide shocking details on data-mining and the exact nature of national assessment and federalized curriculum under the Obama administration's Common Core State Standards.Time: Doors open at 6:00; Program begins at 6:30

When & Where
Delaware Education Reform Coalition
We are parents and grand parents, business owners and taxpayers, students and teachers, who are coming together to demand that education reform be centered on parental rights, local control and lead to better results for our children. We believe that education reform is the Civil Rights issue of our time and that the rights of parents and students must be at the center of any reform movement. We believe that intervention by the federal government and national special interest groups restricts local control, infringes on parental rights and limits student achievement.
