Luna Seeks Student Data Protection

Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna called on Gov. Butch Otter and legislators to safeguard data the state collects from public schools. In a letter sent Thursday to Otter, Senate Education Committee Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d’Alene, and House Education Committee Chairman Reed DeMordaunt, R-Eagle, Luna called for an executive order or a bill to ensure no personally identifiable data on students’ or their families’ religious or political affiliations, voting history or biometric information shall be collected, tracked or reported to the federal government. The only exception Luna outlined was data legally required for the Migrant Student Database/Clark Corbin, IdahoED News. More here.

Question: Do you agree with Luna's concern re: protection for student data collecting from public schools?
