EWA Radio: Student Data Privacy as a Civil Rights Issue

Recording: EWA Radio: Student Data Privacy as a Civil Rights Issue, Date TBA

Schools collect lots of information about students – health records, attendance, grades and disciplinary actions. Many parents aren't aware the data may be shared with others, including private companies or law enforcement, and even analyzed to identify and predict student behavior. Experts explain how some of these seemingly innocuous records have the potential to put students (particularly Black and Hispanic children, students with disabilities and LGBTQ+) on a different life trajectory.
