As parents and concerned citizens protest personally invasive middle school student surveys in Rapid City, Dr. Tim Mitchell of the Rapid City Area Schools admits that the surveys are all about data collection to get federal and state grants.

Aren’t federal and state grants our taxpayer dollars? In order to get out money back, we have to sell the government invasive personal data about our children and families?

You can read more about the surveys and the new South Dakota law requiring written parental consent to opt-in, versus the federal law of parents are allowed to opt-out of behavioral surveys. (Link 1) (Link 2) (Link 3) (Link 4)
