Today, January 28th is Data Privacy Day, the international annual day of action and awareness to promote the privacy of our personal data.
The College Board and ACT sell personal student data at a profit. Yet twenty one states prohibit this practice by school vendors, operators or service providers, under any conditions; see list below. Most every district or state contracts with one of these organizations to administer the PSAT, SAT, AP or ACT exams to students in school.
This needs to stop. Please contact your state Attorneys General today, and ask them to investigate these illegal practices, which violate state student privacy laws and the laws that most every state has that bar deceptive practices. Thanks!
