Just How Much Does Big Business Care About Your Child?

Not much, apparently.

From today's Arkansas Daily Independent:
The Common Core testing company, PARCC, knew it had major data security flaws in its computer-based field tests, administered by Pearson Testing this past spring to over 1 million students in 14 states, but they went ahead with the field test anyway.

Twelve days  before the PARCC field tests were due to begin, an email was sent to state leads that warned of both internal and external  data security flaws in the PARCC computerized tests that posed a security risk to student data.
Did you catch that?  PARCC and Pearson KNEW that there were flaws that posed a security risk to student data but that didn't stop them from administering the field tests!
