As schools increasingly turn to digital technology to help supplement lessons and manage student data, many parents are concerned about who has access to online student information and what it may be used for. A new bill by California Senate president pro tem Darrell Steinberg would ban companies that provide education technology services to K-12 schools from using the data for any purposes other than those the school intended. We discuss student privacy and the impact of the nearly $8 billion education technology software industry.
