Data Mining The First Grade
Last night, my wife and I received the papers you see here as a part of our first.grader’s information packet. The children’s magazine Highlights would give the.classroom a thousand stickers in exchange for our names, address, telephone numbers and email addresses.
There was no promise that the information would not be shared, or used for commercial purposes.
I don’t think that exposing our family, and our first grader, to data mining is worth just a few stickers.
