Jim Steyer on CBS This Morning for "Lessons in Security"
On Monday, August 10, 2015, Common Sense founder and CEO Jim Steyer appeared on CBS This Morning to outline the progress Common Sense Kids Action is making to protect student data across this country.
Jim, Charlie Rose, Norah O'Donnell, and guest host Kristine Johnson had a great discussion about the challenges and opportunities that technology presents for kids, parents, and educators in classrooms that use edtech to power learning.
The interview occurred just days after Delaware became the fourth state to sign into law SOPIPA-like legislation to protect student data from misuse. As Jim outlined the significance of this momentum to pass laws to keep students' personal information out of non-education-related interests, "Technology is here to stay in your kids' education, and used properly it can be great -- but we have to protect kids' privacy."
