This bill requires Department of Education to conduct study to determine feasibility of collecting student course grade history in grades 6 through 12.
The vagueness makes for poor legislation. Since this statement is singular, “collecting student course grade history” that it isn’t a collective report, but on individual students. Protecting individual student information beyond the local school is important. Tracking individual records can only lead to penguin-holing students into career paths and destroying initiative.
