Tracy Ramey, of Pennsylvanians against Common Core wrote a letter to Gov. Tom Corbett to “shutdown of the state’s Pennsylvania Information Management System (PIMS) in all 500 school districts.”

Can you guess what type of information is held in PIMS?

“The personally identifiable information includes information on every student’s personality, attitudes, values, beliefs, and disposition, a psychological profile called Interpersonal Skills Standards and anchors.”

“This data has been illegally obtained through deceptive means without the parents’ knowledge or consent through screening, evaluations, testing, and surveys. These illegal methods of information gathering were actually fraudulently called ‘academic standards’ on the [Pennsylvania] Department of Education website portal.”
