🌩️ Schools in the continue to outsource highly sensitive data about students to vendors to store in the "cloud", er, .

🔓 A vendor used by some of the country's largest cities was recently breached, despite years of increasing legal policies ostensibly to protect data.

🤦🏻 You won't believe what happened next.

@downey This should be criminally prosecuted. Schools would stop doing this unnecessary shit.

@downey my school has sold my information to so many colleges without my consent, i specifically checked the box on the ACT standardized test that said "don't send my information to colleges" but i get piles of recruitment mail and email anyway. ugh.

@hamblingreen Ugh. Yeah, I've heard some stories that those testing companies use marketing as a major income source. Disappointing.
