What are Surveys?

  • Social Emotional Learning (SEL) categorizes every student as“at-risk” of needing behavioral intervention.
  • Allows schools to use surveys as a way to collect mental health data on students.
  • Allows schools to conduct mental health evaluations on every student.
  • Data is stored and used to create psychological profiles for each student.
    Data is monitored and continuously updated creating a permanent profile of your child.

Why Surveys?

Surveys use leading questions to gain access to student’s attitudes, beliefs, and values on subjective and divisive issues such as race, biases, gender ideology, and identity issues.
The surveys are used as a way to continue the goal of creating a “social justice” culture in schools and continue policies that lower academic achievement.

What do they do with the data?

  • All mental health data collected is interpreted through an “Equity Lens’’ that believes America is racist and oppressive.
  • Data generates individual scores based on conformity to the social justice belief system.


  • President Obama’s Education Race to the Top program awarded over $4 billion to states agreeing to build or improve Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) that store psychological profiles of students.
  • SLDS are continuously offered grants and incentives to expand their systems & capabilities.
  • Statewide systems can eventually link nationally and then globally.
  • Similar to Social Credit Scores in China
  • Data will not only impact their education but in the near future will likely have a life-altering impact when they enter postsecondary education, the workforce, the military, exercise their constitutional rights, etc.

What about


  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) was originally a stron bill that blocked any school from disclosing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from a student’s educational records to any non-school official without parental notification or consent.
  • In 2008 and 2009 the bill was amended and consequently left useless by allowing schools to share data with third party companies and organizations
  • Medical and counseling records included in your child’s education records are not protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA).
  • The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) protects students from having to reveal personal information without parental consent IF it is required, funded by the federal government and collects data such as political affiliations and religious beliefs.
  • Most surveys given to students are NOT required and therefore are not protected by PPRA.
  • Schools are only required to notify parents of a survey being given and allow parents to opt their children out.
  • Schools often slip this information in with multiple forms or handbooks in the beginning of the year to meet federal requirements and often goes unnoticed by parents.
    PPRA gives you the right to stop the data mining of your child but YOU must enforce it.
  • Surveys (be they in our outside of the classroom) are leading and ask biased queries.
  • Collected data is interpreted through an “equity lens” of systemic racism and oppression producing biased results.
  • The cycle of indoctrination continues based on biased results.
