Argument in favor

Improves student privacy and protects sensitive information from being sold or kept after it has been used for its intended purpose.

If these people have actually committed crimes, this information should be available, but until then, this information should be secure.

This is data kept in file rooms of public schools and computers of small schools that lack sufficient firewalls. Our State Dept. Of Ed does not necessarily keep this information as confidential as it should be. We collect too much data on kids.

Student information should only go to parents, the courts or law enforcement with a warrant or to anyone else the student or parent expressly authorizes.

Argument opposed

Contains unnecessary provisions that already exist in current law, while creating roadblocks to effective use of information.

If we are talking college age students: those people are of majority and their parents have no right accessing the student's personal information, even @to make corrections." Wouldn't this part of law be similar to the way HIPPA is handled? Marketing products and services from a school's roster should be allowed,

    I'm not sure when it ever became permissible to hand over private student data to any one private company. In fact, all private data, student, adult or whatever should not be handed over to anyone without the express permission of the individual involved.

    As a college student, I support this. I don't want MY private information out there to be sold or used for an unintended purpose after I was forced to hand it over.

    Something to keep in mind is the impact of these decisions on the ability of teachers to freely use and explore the use of technology in the classrooms. The more restrictions and processes needed to use tech safely, the less likely teachers are going to be willing to use the tech.

    "Prohibit the use of a student’s personally identifiable information (PII) to advertise or market a product or service; " that alone is enough to support this idea.

    Students of all ages deserve maximum privacy of their information. It should NEVER be available for purchase by ANYONE OR ANY INSTITUTION - PRIVATE OR GOVERNMENT.

    End the data collection and sharing of private student information without parental consent. We are on a dangerous data path that will end our hard fought freedoms. Private information is no one's business!
