Privacy Act of 1974, as Amended; Computer Matching Program between the U.S. Department of Education and the Social Security Administration
Purpose of the Match
The computer matching program will assist ED in its obligation to ensure that borrowers with disabilities who have loans under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) (20 U.S.C. 1070 et seq.), more efficiently and effectively apply for total and permanent disability discharge of their student loans.
Social Security was enacted to care for individuals once they retired or were no longer able to work. Social Security was paid to individuals who paid into the system with many years of service to the “company store”.
In 1977, the Social Security Administration provided educational support to 865,542 students at a cost of $135,144,000, or $160 per student. In 1999, the Administration serviced 104,230 students at $49,910,000 costing $479 per student.
We continue to support the failure of our children to successfully complete their secondary education when they have not been properly educated at the elementary level.
We continue to provide public funds to private post-secondary institutions to prepare our children to become “middle class” workers, funding the profits of the “hedgehogs” and paying to eliminate the poverty a class system creates.
When we change the language of education so that it concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of every child towards becoming a knowledgeable, actively engaged citizen, the voice of the 1% will no longer be able to be heard above the 99.
When we provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education, in neighborhood schools with small teacher/student ratios, delivered by knowledgeable, dedicated educators who understand and respect their own gifts and talents so that they can recognize and respect the gifts and talents of every individual in the school community, it is then and only then that we can stop the “hedgehogs” from profiting from the educational failure of our children.
When must work together to effect change in our system of education so that our children can realize their full, true potential as gifted human beings.
