4/29: Town Hall on Student Privacy and School Data Sharing

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Parents: do you know that your child’s confidential, personal school records are going to be shared with a corporation called inBloom?

This highly sensitive information will be stored on remote servers “in the cloud,” shared with this corporation, and could be disclosed to third-party for-profit corporations, to help them develop and market “learning products.”

The data could include your child’s names, address, photo, email, test scores, grades, special education, economic and racial status, and could include detailed disciplinary and health records as well.

Please come and learn more about this plan from advocates and state and city education officials.

When: Monday, April 29th, 6 p.m.
Where: Brooklyn Borough Hall, 209 Joralemon Street
