Common Sense Media, a national education and technology nonprofit group, launched a $20 million project last week aimed at prioritizing education issues through a range of legislative and political efforts.

Common Sense Kids Action will focus on such areas as early-childhood education, teacher training and professional development, effective technology use in schools, career training and preparation for students, student-data privacy, and childhood poverty.

The campaign will push policymakers in at least a dozen states to replicate data-privacy legislation similar to California's. It also will try to increase broadband access for students, schools, and low-income families.
