Meanwhile, the personal data of 663 students in Mississippi was also breached, including their test score data. Why no NY student test scores were accessed and even if we can be sure that is the case is still a mystery. Clearly, many unanswered questions remain, including the impact of the breach on NY opt out rates, as Jeanette Deutermann and I discussed on LI Talk Radio on Monday.
Articles about the data breach were published in the NYT, Chalkbeat and elsewhere. According to NYSED, the data of ten NYC students at PS 15 Jackie Robinson school in Queens was illegally accessed and 31 students on Long Island.
