Student Data Privacy
A nonprofit organization today released a state-by-state survey of student privacy laws in the United States. The Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), with help from law firm BakerHostetler, collected information from all 50 states to create the State Student Privacy Law Compendium.
Organized by each state, CDT’s compendium offers insights into key issues under the following categories:
In 2015, states introduced more than 180 bills, of which 28 passed to become laws. So far this year, 36 states have introduced 112 bills, of which 16 passed in 14 states, according to an analysis from the Data Quality Campaign. “CDT expects the number of student data privacy laws to increase exponentially over the next decade,” according to the compendium.
Further information is available in the State Student Privacy Law Compendium.
