Conservatives Are Leading the Way on Protecting Students
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal recently signed an executive order banning the dissemination of any personal information about students, further strengthening protection of privacy in Georgia.
Additionally, Oklahoma legislators concerned about protecting students passed new legislation this past session directly addressing this issue. Oklahoma House Bill 1989 requires the state to establish data collection and privacy policies for students. Republican Governor Mary Fallin signed this bill into law in May of 2013.
These are good approaches in dealing with privacy issues and should be considered by other states, regardless of Common Core standards.
