EdSurge Carries Piece on Best Practices for Student Privacy



October 30 – EdSurge, a independent online resource on education technology, has  a piece on student data privacy written by FPF’s own Jules Polonetsky and Brenda Leong.  Polonetsky and Leong comment on a “trust gap” between parents and schools when it comes to the collection, use, and security of student data, and discuss the best practices schools and their affiliate service providers can employ to bridge that gap.  They write “…companies and schools can work together to close by demonstrating increased understanding of parental concerns, strong policies and practices, and good communications among all stakeholders.”
