Congress may soon incorporate student privacy safeguards into legislation for digital learning in the classroom. Congress needs to merge two bills that provide technology funding for schools but require extensive student data collection -- the "Every Child Achieves Act of 2015" (S. 1177) and the "Student Success Act" (H.R. 5). Pending student privacy bills include the "Student Privacy Protection Act of 2015" (H.R. 3157)), the "Student Privacy Protection Act of 2015" (S. 1341), the "Student Digital Privacy and Parental Rights Act of 2015'' (H.R. 2092), and the "Protecting Student Privacy Act of 2015'' (S. 1322). EPIC supports establishment of a Student Privacy Bill of Rights.
