DATA Mining in Palm Beach
I have noticed a disturbing trend in the US as corporations are being given access to confidential student information. I just found out that one way districts are doing this is to give the organizations status as interested parties or “other school officials.” This is outrageous and legal action should be started. Parents and students have no idea what is being done. Here is my report on how Palm Beach County just sold access to private student DATA, to a private consulting group.
Unless you check the agendas of your local boards- you might never know about these things.
