ALBANY, New York: Democratic Assemblyman Daniel O'Donnell has proposed a new bill that prevents New York schools from sharing personal information about students with private companies without parental permission.[1] The bill is in response to schools sharing information, including addresses and learning disabilities, with a company called inBloom. Proponents of the bill are concerned this information could fall into the wrong hands and damage a child’s reputation beyond the classroom.[2]
