Larry Magid of Connect Safely Tells Parents How They Can Protect Their Child’s Data in the Digital Age

Larry Magid, President and CEO of ConnectSafely writes an article for the Mercury News called: “MAGID ON TECH: Know Your Child’s Rights in the Information Age“. The article articulates student rights under FERPA and what parents should know to keep their children safe.

“Schools have disciplinary information about students and all sorts of data about student performance.
