re: N.Y. State Preps InBloom Student Data Dashboards
Yeah...that's kind of a major update. There's only one state standing, NY. Hmmm, wonder why that is? Maybe because, as stated clearly on the inBloom TOS, their company can't guarantee the security of the data being stored there. Opps. Someone got hold of it. Don't hold us libel. This is a rushed pending disaster. NY should be opting out completely until that is resolved.
It is not even a year into this begin first announced (it was first launched at SxSW last February) and there is a reason NY is trying to rush it and begin data collection: they don't want parents to find out about it. 99.5% of parents in my large, local, Long Island district have no clue about this. I'm watching the tweets currently flying through my timeline about social security numbers being stolen, health care data being illegally sold and hacked into, college data breaches. None of those are potentially as bad as this. The data of minors being compromised.
