Ask the Mayor and Chancellor to stop violating student privacy now!

Send a letter to the Mayor and Chancellor asking them to stop violating student privacy by making personal information available to charter schools for marketing purposes.

Last fall, parent leader and CEC President Johanna Garcia filed a FERPA complaint with the federal government about the DOE’s practice of allowing charter schools to access her child’s personal information to send marketing materials and recruit more students.  Now the US Department of Education and the NY State Education Dept are investigating her complaint, as reported in the NY Post. More about this here – including the US Dept of Education’s letter announcing the launch of this investigation, and an earlier letter from Council Members Dromm, Treyger, Lander and Levin to the Mayor and Chancellor, urging them to stop this practice, which not only violates student privacy but by helping charters expand, diverts more funding from our public schools.

If you’d like to add your voice, please send a message to the Mayor and the Chancellor now by clicking here.
