EPIC Urges House to Safeguard Student Privacy

EPIC has sent a statement to a House Committee in advance of the Committee's hearing on "How Emerging Technology Affects Student Privacy." EPIC urged the Committee to "pursue effective measures that meaningfully safeguard student data," including adoption of the Student Privacy Bill of Rights, privacy enhancing techniques, and a private right of action against companies that unlawfully disclose student data. Last month, President Obama proposed legislation to "ensure that data collected in the educational context is used only for educational purposes." EPIC has previously urged Congress, the Education Department, and the Federal Trade Commission to strengthen student privacy.
