Share this post

Plans to create a student database filled with every Indiana student's academic track record and eventual job history is raising privacy concerns. ABC News reports the Indiana "Network of Knowledge" will track students from elementary school through college and into the workforce. A database filled with every Indiana student's achievement test scores, college degrees, and job histories - state officials say, to help them identify "trends" and tailor the education system to better meet employers' needs. Some parents and educators are alarmed. Even though great care will be taken to remove student names and other identifying information, one law school professor worries that the database could be used to track down students with unpaid loans.
