Senator Al Franken (D-MN) asked Google to explain what the company does with student data, including: what types of data Google collects, to whom Google discloses student information, and whether students and schools “have control over what data is being collected and how the data are being used?” Senator Franken stated, “I believe Americans have a fundamental right to privacy, and that right includes a student or parent’s access to information about what data are being collected about them and how the data are being used.” EPIC has called for a Student Privacy Bill of Rights, an enforceable student privacy and data security framework.
