In Jefferson County, Colorado, there are serious questions about a survey known as "Make Your Voice Heard" that was given by school staff to the students. Unlike previous surveys that were totally anonymous, this survey employed the use of the computers and student ID for completion which means that it is feasible to trace the responses to the student and therefore the household.
While many of the questions may seem quite innocuous, other questions are leading and may leave someone to think that there may be problems within the home. So, the question should be asked, when your children respond to surveys in schools do you fully appreciate the content of the questionnaires or that these surveys are being tracked, and if tracked then who is doing the tracking and for what purpose?
