Our press conference on the steps of Tweed this morning was terrific. Among those who spoke out against this reckless and outrageous plan to commercialize our children's highly sensitive information without parental consent included civil rights attorney Norman Siegel, CMs Steve Levin, Tish James, and Daniel Dromm, and mayoral candidate Tom Allon.
Parents Tory Frye, Karen Sprowal, Molly Sackler, and Lisa Shaw were among the fifty or so parents who attended, and expressed their personal outrage that their children's names, grades, emails, phone numbers, test scores, health, special education and disciplinary records would be so carelessly exposed, without even consulting them about it. We also showed how all this data is being provided to vendors, with no thought of how this is may stigmatize and endanger our children's privacy and their future success. Video soon (thanks to Justin Wedes!) Our press release, with quotes from many other public officials, is below.
