About ConnectEdu, their college/career division was acquired by a group called Graduation Alliance. Some other activists and I are looking into this as the FTC had said they were not going to allow ConnectEdu to sell student data.
SPS students (and their parents) should have each received an e-mail in the last week, telling them they can take their data off or leave it, should they want to access GA's services. I was also told that GA had sent a letter to every parent, telling them this and introducing their company.
If anyone got such a letter, could you scan it and send it to me? I'd like to see what they said.
I am going to be on hiatus again over the next week but will try to keep up especially if there is breaking news. It would be great if anyone attending the Work Session on the Federal Reserve building could take careful notes (especially on the recommendation) and either send them to me or write up a report yourself and send it to me.
What's on your mind?
