A new special report in Education Week shines a light on how difficult the task of protecting student data has become.
Titled “‘There Are So Many Issues’: Why Schools Are Struggling to Protect Student Data“, it details latest privacy breaches and vendor vulnerabilities and describes fallout from cut corners because of the pandemic. All of which lead to “a broad range of considerations, from students’ own smartphones, to classroom applications discovered and embraced by teachers, to district-level data systems, to state testing programs.”
The article argues student data privacy is too important to simply be left to districts. Enabling state, provincial or even national technological infrastructures for student data governance is one of the challenges Unison was created to solve.
Learn how the sorts of role-based permissions control uniquely enabled by Unison’s approach can help ensure school districts, states & provinces and even whole countries leverage their student data for the good of learners while carefully managing who gets access to what, and when. Contact us.
