How could this possibly be true?
Has the BUSD completely lost its mind? There’s so much wrong with this.
Different subject about BUSD…been bugging me for a few days now.
My kid came home the other day and mentioned that he had to sit through a whole class devoted to some “3rd party company” that Burbank’s tied into about bullying. It was a survey listing every kids name in 9th grade with multiple choice questions ranging from popularity to if they have bullying tendencies. Lots of questions.
So it seems like Burbank is now using their own students to profile the other students. Obviously the students (kids being kids) are putting their friends names in the categories they normally wouldn’t, just so they can laugh about it after. What happens to this info after? What does the 3rd party have to do with it?
My kid didn’t participate since he never brought the permission form home…but his name was still part of the survey. The teacher was pushing him pretty hard to participate as well.
Am I paranoid or is this just wrong? I’m pretty close to contacting the school about this.
So the kids get to review every other kid for their subjective personal qualities, some of which might be considered culpable or even potentially illegal?
How about their “grit”? We hear that’s a big new concern now for these 21st-century school administrators and data-mining companies. How much grit a student has.
What these kids should really do to gum up the works down there is to just put every one of their fellow students down as a potential first-class bully. Make the entire student body come across as one big prison yard of grief for the administrators.
It’d serve these district assholes right. Then again, they’d probably just suspend every kid for “insubordination” for having the temerity to pull such a brilliant stunt.
