New York assembly bill to protect privacy of students
By Megan Busse
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. 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.
