"The U.S. Department of Education is investigating how public schools can collect information on 'non-cognitive' student attributes, after granting itself the power to share student data across agencies without parents' knowledge. The feds want to use schools to catalogue 'attributes, dispositions, social skills, attitudes and intrapersonal resources -- independent of intellectual ability,' according to a February DOE report, all under the guise of education."
