“Parents’ Bill of Rights”

Every parent has a fundamental right to protect their child’s personal data and to choose what information is available and to whom.  With that in mind, I was proud to support the creation of a “Parents’ Bill of Rights”.

As part of this year’s State Budget, the State Education Department (SED) was required to develop a "Parents' Bill of Rights" on the use and security of student data. The law was a direct result of strong parental opposition to the inBloom data cloud project.  In addition to requiring the Bill of Rights, the law also forced SED to eliminate the plan to participate in the inBloom project.
