Who is collecting student and teacher data? Who can get it? What are the risks? What has changed? What is FERPA? How have other states acted to increase data protections? What can parents, legislators, educators, and local communities do?
Come learn the answers to these questions and more at a CEA organized informational forum in Hartford at the Legislative Office Building in room 1E on Thursday, January 21, from 12:00-2:00 p.m.
The forum will help parents, policymakers, and others increase their knowledge and awareness of issues involving student privacy and the increase in data mining of educational records. Building knowledge and awareness of student privacy practices and pitfalls will help parents, educators, and state and local policymakers better navigate decisions affecting educational records.
This forum is open to all legislators and members of the public. Please encourage your legislator to attend. Video will be made available following the event for educators and others who are not able to attend.
The event will be moderated by state Representative Andrew Fleischmann, co-chair of the legislature’s Education Committee.
Speakers will include:
- Khaliah Barnes, Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), Washington, D.C.
- Cameron Russell, Executive Director, Center on Law and Information Policy (CLIP) at Fordham University School of Law
- Leonie Haimson, founder of New York’s Parent Coalition for Student Privacy
- Brian Kelly, Chief Information Security Officer, Quinnipiac University
