Violating parental consent with "passive consent": kids used as junk science research subjects by UBC's HELP
In June, UBC's Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) declined to provide a copy of its Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI) until unspecified time, but elementary school students are asked to answer the 70+ invasive personal questions and HELP takes the data and links it to medical, census and other private records AND parents' records "from preconception" on. "Passive consent" is used to obtain parental consent. Students' consent is not asked for. So much for their desire to hear "children's voices."
