SENATOR MARTINS FEATURED IN CABLEVISION EDITORIAL ON SCHOOL PRIVACY ISSUES

 

Senator Jack M. Martins was recently featured in a Cablevision editorial on student privacy concerns regarding the inBloom system of storing student information.  The editorial stated, "Educators believe that by using this cloud technology, third party vendors can develop computer apps to individualize instruction and diagnose learning problems. Sounds promising, but not to State Senator Jack Martins who worries about privacy. His sensible legislation would require state educators to gain parental consent before sharing sensitive student data with inBloom and third parties."
