Price for Nevada dad to see state's school files on his kids: $10G | Fox News
This can't possibly hold up to public scrutiny. Why wasn't this system designed to produce individual reports from the start?Nevada dad John Eppolito got a bad case of sticker shock when he asked state education officials to see the permanent records of his four children.
He was told it would cost $10,194.
A Lake Tahoe-area real estate agent by trade and a fierce opponent of Common Core, Eppolito was concerned about Nevada's recent decision to join a multi-state consortium that shares students’ data. He wanted to know exactly what information had been compiled on his school-age kids. But state officials told him he would have to pay fees and the cost of programming and running a custom report.
“The problem is that I can’t stop them from collecting the data,” Eppolito told FoxNews.com. “I just wanted to know what it [collected data] was. It almost seems impossible. Certainly $10,000 is enough reason to prevent a parent from getting the data.”
