Privacy protection a parental responsibility
Posted: April 23, 2015

A child’s right to privacy can be protected against intruders by the person so authorized to do so. The “authority” could be a parent, foster care parent or in some cases assigned health care counselor. I don’t mean to sound harsh or any way offensive toward PV parents, but it’s only the irresponsible and fearful parent that makes no effort to opt out of high stakes testing until they know and fully understand all the consequences of student achievement or lack of student achievement. These are important times in education and Common Core is a proven game changer. These recent events, including the sorely attended “Common Core Unveiled” event, suggests that parents in PVPUSD are not so exceptional after all.
