Creating a Privacy Zone for Student Data

Schools are using software to manage all kinds of information about children, from grades, to test scores to classroom behavior. But as these programs proliferate, how can schools be sure this student data is secure? And what do parents need to know to keep their children's information safe? City Visions explores the effort to create a "School Privacy Zone" to protect student data.

Guests: Crista Stumanik, Common Sense Media; Tony Porterfield, engineer and parent advocate and Ann Duncan, Palo Alto School District.

Resources:
