Locking the Cloud: Student Data Collection and Privacy Safeguards
Regulations governing student data have been in place since the 1970s. But given that they were written before the digitization and monetization of data, are they sufficient to apply in a 21st century virtual context? States have started writing tougher student data privacy protections into their laws, but privacy experts think that big holes remain. Congress is also interested in updating federal rules. This issue of Policy Priorities explores the decidedly gray area of evolving policies, regulations, and practices around student data security and privacy.
