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.

Here’s another link for our friends in Europe and abroad that may work: https://www.engadget.com/2019/05/30/facial-recognition-us-schools-new-york/

Link gives me error 451.

Same, as I’m not in America. “We recognize you are attempting to access this website from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA) including the EU which enforces the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and therefore access cannot be granted at this time.”

Probably says more about the site than me…
