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.
