‘Dystopian’: District’s parental consent form authorizes school to collect information on everything about your child

Jason Bedrick is director of policy at EdChoice, and he’s posted a parental consent form from the Scottsdale Unified School District that seems like one of those things you’d just click to sign electronically and be on your way. This one’s worth reading, though; the form authorizes the school district to collect information on just about everything about your child, from quality of home and personal relationships to something about gun and ammunition ownership.

In case that image got cut off:

What the hell is “illegal, antisocial or self-incriminating behavior critical appraisal of individuals within a close relationship and gun/ammunition ownership”?

It’s like something from the fevered nightmares of Alex Jones — you want my kids’ biometric info and to know whether I own guns?

But some bureaucrats actually thought this was a good idea.

Speaking of bureaucrats, some think that just because it’s opt-in that it’s totally okay for the government to be collecting all this info about kids and their families. https://t.co/J4wyyGwU3X

It feels violating to read this

I’m puzzled why someone would sign this.

— RhythmDoc (@RhythmDoc01) July 21, 2021

I wouldn’t.

It’s called Social Emotional Learning and it’s organized and it’s equity based re-education camp type of stuff

I would not sign this thing.

Can you refuse to sign this part, or is it all or nothing?

What in the hell? Would they like my DNA too?

Why people still have their kids in government schools is beyond me. Time for every rational, thinking American to homeschool.

Is there a GFY on the dropdown tab?

If you are willing to let the government educate your children, you shouldn’t be angry or surprised by this.

— Rob McNealy (@RobMcNealy) July 21, 2021

I don’t. But I do think district schools parents are justifiably upset by this.

— Jason Bedrick (@JasonBedrick) July 21, 2021

but if your son identifies as a girl at school, they won’t tell you.

Have you spoken with your neighbors and the parents of your children’s friends? Is everyone appalled by this or just us crazy most libertarians?

— Ross Levatter (@rlevatter) July 21, 2021

Ordinary parents are fired up.

Dear @ScottsdaleUSD, your invasive, dystopian & likely illegal, “consent” form is… pic.twitter.com/HUCI4XOC8Q

As someone said in the comments, it might make a difference if parents trusted public schools anymore, but they’ve thrown away their credibility along with the media.
