Statement on Legislative Testimony
FOR RELEASE: November 26, 2013
During recent testimony on student privacy before the state Assembly Education Committee, NYSSBA Governmental Relations Director David Little referred to the concept of an “inBloom score.” His intention was to present a hypothetical scenario of the possible ways in which student information could be misused in the future. His cautionary example of the “inBloom score” was meant to alert lawmakers to the unforeseen consequences of how student information that we collect today could be misused tomorrow. NYSSBA does not support an “inBloom score” and certainly would never propose that such a score be created.
