The horror of the name ‘Predictive Risk Index’ is enough to send shivers down your spine. The Government is one step closer to their mass surveillance of children with plans to scrap the school decile system and attach the funding directly to ‘at risk children’ that the Ministry of Love decides based upon the mass surveillance data they have amassed on the child.
If school decile’s are alienating for people, how will being a member of the ‘Predictive Risk Index’ create anything other than fear and stereotyping?
This isn’t about targeting funding, this is about spying on the lives of children as they grow up and tainting them personally for life.
The frightening part here is that NZers won’t care about the rights of beneficiary children and will allow the State to continue their mass surveillance programmes targeting these kids.
If this level of mass surveillance was being suggested against white and affluent children, it just wouldn’t happen, but by aiming it at beneficiary children, the Government hopes to con enough of the sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind to give them what they want.
