NC No Longer Listed on inBloom, Inc.’s Website

Questioning the bureaucrats sometimes produces changes! I posted a blog back in March stating how North Carolina was partnering with a company, inBloom, Inc., regarding data collection on students, and Guilford County was the pilot.  Well, guess what?  I have heard the NC Department of Instruction has decided NOT to work with this company any longer. Could this decision be the result of all the parents, citizens who questioned their partnership?I have requested documentation of DPI’s decision, but as of yet nothing has been provided.  What I do know is that inBloom, Inc., website has removed ALL mention of North Carolina’s partnership and pilot project.  In fact, the site currently does not even list states or systems any longer. Their website only gives comments from various customers.

  • Nope – not related. Of course this site entirely misunderstands inBloom.

  • The people should be demanding answers to question about the collection of data on our students. The data collection spawned by Race To The Top and the nationalization of Common Core Standards is a violation of individual rights under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S Constitution. It is an invasion of privacy for collecting data to be sold or provided to private corporations, state agencies and individuals who claim a need. It is becoming clearer by the day how extensive and invasive this data collection will be. Now is the time to stop this insidious program before this data is collected and disseminated destroying our right to be secure in our persons, houses, papers and effects.
