News in Brief
Guide to Data Privacy Issued for Parents
The Future of Privacy Forum has released a guide to help parents understand student-data-privacy policies and clarify students' and parents' protections under state and federal law.
The National PTA and Connect Safely, a California nonprofit that promotes safe use of online technology, worked with the forum, a Washington-based organization that advocates responsible use of data, in publishing the online resource.
The new parent resource provides details about who can access students' data, what education companies can do with student information, what laws are in place to protect student data, and when parents can opt out of sharing their child's information.
