Students in American schools already have their privacy ripped from them with the pervasive use of Google Apps for Education and other cloud-based applications and database solutions. This school district is taking it a step further. I like how the superintendent brushed off the controversy by saying “it’s not something that is prohibited right now for us.”
We really need to have a conversation in this country about the abuses in technology that school systems are committing on students. These are our kids for Pete’s sake. We as parents can’t sit idly by while they sell off their private information to Ad companies (Google) and the like.
