Action of the Week: Student Data Mining/Privacy Concerns

ICE Parent Action/Education Advocacy
The Board of Regents recently approved a Gates Foundation grant for the Regents Research Fund “to support NYS to launch, execute and utilize implementation data collection at the state level.”

New York State Allies for Public Education and Class Size Matters are calling for parents and other interested New Yorkers to oppose this project until there is "more transparency concerning what personally identifiable student and teacher data will be collected, with whom the data will be shared, how they will be stored, and what their ultimate disposition will be, as well as why aggregate anonymous student data is not sufficient for the purposes of this study."
If you agree that our children's data should be more carefully safeguarded, please click this link to register your objections to the plan as is.
