President Obama Backs Student Privacy Law

Today the President will propose legislation to safeguard student data, to "ensure that data collected in the educational context is used only for educational purposes." The Student Digital Privacy Act, based on a landmark California statute, will prohibit companies from selling data for non-educational purposes and from using data for targeted advertising. Last year, EPIC called for a Student Privacy Bill of Rights to safeguard student information. EPIC has urged Congress and the Department of Education to strengthen student privacy.
