The Washington Post reports the New York Board of Regents has begun exploring ways to change the state's student privacy legislation. The board seeks to allow school contractors that administer tests, including the College Board or American College Testing, to collect and use student data for marketing purposes. New York's law was originally passed in 2014, but its first draft regulations came about in 2018. Both the College Board and ACT explained that they use student data appropriately and do not sell what they collect. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
