We trusted the superintendent’s plan to pilot STAT in select “Lighthouse Schools” that would be sufficient to evaluate efficacy and work out problems. Instead, STAT was rolled out quickly. We trusted that the superintendent would follow Rule 6002, “Evaluation and Selection of Instructional Materials,” which requires that selected materials be free of questions or activities that invade personal or family privacy by requiring students to reveal private, personal or family information. Instead, computer-based learning companies have been allowed to collect, store, and utilize student information without parental consent. We trusted that STAT would improve academic achievement. Instead, program evaluators from Johns Hopkins report little to no improvement linked directly to the digital initiative.
