Two former students in the Miami-Dade school district are suing the school board for posting their personal information online, the Miami Herald reports. A basic web search revealed the school had posted the Social Security numbers and test scores of the two students, as well as personal information of hundreds of others. "The carelessness with how the district manages students' private information needs to be addressed," Lawyer Stephanie Langer said. The students, according to the report, are seeking monetary damages and an "overhaul" of school district policies on data protection. The school district, however, called it an "isolated incident" and said that an investigation is underway.
