Your family’s Right-to-Privacy should not be infringed upon by any branch of government.
The NH Senate Education Committee will meet on Tuesday 1/29 at 10:15 am, the Legislative Office Building room 103 Concord, NH.
Agenda item…SB 196 Parental Consent for Non-academic Survey read here.
In our legal system, and in the State of New Hampshire, the standard policy imposed on all Industries requires “opt in” consent .
There is no justification to carve out a special standard for schools when it comes to the issue of parental rights and privacy!
If SB 192 is passed, parents will be required to opt out of these surveys. Parents from across the state have advised School Board officials that they never received notification about some of the surveys already being conducted.
When testing is conducted as a routine educational, institutional, or organizational activity, informed consent should never be implied…it should be manditory!
Full disclosure and consent of the evaluation including the purpose of the evaluation should be obtained prior to any such evaluation…especially when minor children are involved.
An example of a UNH survey given to Andover, MA High School students can be read here. (source: fox news Boston)
