EPIC Testifies on Student Privacy before California State Assembly

EPIC's Student Privacy Project Director Khaliah Barnes testified before the California State Assembly Education Committee and Select Committee on Privacy, on "Ensuring Student Privacy in the Digital Age." EPIC's testimony: (1) explained how the U.S. Education Department’s regulations encourage mass collection of student data; (2) described the privacy risks that students today face; (3) underscored the need for data security safeguards for states, schools, and private companies accessing student information; and (4) recommended that California adopt EPIC's Student Privacy Bill of Rights. Earlier this week, Senators Markey and Hatch proposed bipartisan student privacy legislation. For more information, see EPIC: Student Privacy.
