Leonie Haimson is an intrepid activist FOR ENDING CORRUPTION AND FOSTERING PUBLIC EDUCATION GOALS. DIANE RAVITCH NOTES: "You might think you were in an episode of Downton Abbey, as you observe the rich and powerful planning how to gather and use the data of New York's children, without their parents' permission." In this multi-part series, Leonie tells the story of her quest to gain access to New York State Education Department emails and the various entities involved in the authorization of inBloom. That initiative involved public officials, the Gates Foundation, and many others. Its goal was to release personally identifiable information about students without their parent’s consent. The data would be stored in a “cloud” created by Rupert Murdoch’s Wireless Generation (run by Joel Klein), with no guarantees that the data could not be hacked.
