Please Call to Urge Members of the NYS Senate to Protect the Privacy Rights of Students and to Prevent the Sharing of Students' Data with For-Profit Vendors



This is the last week of the state legislative session. A bill, A. 7872, that would allow parents to opt-out of the risky student data-sharing scheme called inBloom Inc. was approved by the Assembly Education Committee last week.

Please call these three Senators today and urge them to pass the same bill in the NYS Senate:

Senator Dean Skelos: (518) 455-3171
Senator Jeff Klein: (718) 822-2049
Senator John Flanagan: (631) 361-2154

These three men could save your children from having their most private information shared with for-profit vendors and protected from data breaches that could permanently damage their futures.

More about inBloom Inc. and how the state’s plan to share your child’s most sensitive data violates student privacy and parental rights is attached and posted here. Please call your Senators today!

Thanks, Leonie
