Summary

#EWAdata

The Department of Education amended federal student privacy laws to loosen restrictions on sharing the information. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy for journalists to access. We'll explore current rules on data privacy—Too lax? Too tight?—and look at how districts have interpreted them. We’ll also discuss the ways in which enterprising education reporters have gotten volumes of student data, and the eye-opening stories they have produced.
