Obama To Propose New Student Privacy Legislation

President Obama is planning to propose new federal legislation to safeguard student privacy, a move that comes as new classroom technologies gather sensitive personal information about children in order to deliver personalized lessons.

“We’re saying that data collected on students in the classroom should only be used for educational purposes — to teach our children, not to market to our children,” Obama said last week in a speech previewing several cybersecurity measures he is expected to discuss in Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
