"I've been tracking the government's powerful obsession with gathering data about children on the grounds that it will help protect them."

There's been a lot of talk about this in Poland recently relating to a very sad event that happened just over a week ago (you know where to look). There's a theory going around here that this permanent invigilation of children under the guise of protecting them is actually stripping away any sense of personal responsibility they might have, thus leading them to 'do what they will' when they find themselves not under supervision.

I'm currently trying to get permission to repost one of the more interesting blogs on the subject, having translated it. 'Tragedy' is the post you're looking for. And 'the philosophy of the school room' is the government's response.
