Senators Introduce Data Privacy Changes to FERPA
July 31, 2014

Senators Ed Markey and Orrin Hatch on Wednesday introduced changes to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA, which would require institutions to have policies in place for protecting student data or risk losing federal funding. However, since the bipartisan bill only addresses data contained in the students' educational records, it would not cover clickstream data and other insights collected by ed-tech companies. Senators John Walsh and Mark Kirk co-sponsored the bill.
