Ms Attai’s new book on student data privacy is an essential read for every educator. She effectively provides context for the concerns, an educator's perspective, practical technical knowledge and relevant solutions in accessible language. As the CIO of a large public school district, it would be helpful if all of our Instructional leaders and teachers read this book so that they are knowledgeable about what data privacy means and how to keep student data safe, since it is so dependent on human action.
