Class Care System

My children’s secondary school has a behaviour system that sends me updates about their (mostly brilliant) behaviour. The data isn’t terribly useful and I have grave concerns about their privacy. It is of course possible to argue that the system is being designed to enable me to parent better and to be involved in their education, but there are ethical issues.

However Class Care appears to be the same idea dreamt up in a totalitarian state with scant little regard for privacy.
