The Harm of Data Breaches in Public K-12 Schools

Thursday, October 15, 2020

Schools collect and store a range of information about students, including data on their grades and test scores, addresses and phone numbers, Social Security numbers, and even medical information. Disclosing this information could be harmful to students physically, emotionally, and impact their long-term financial health. We talk with GAO's Jackie Nowicki--an expert on K-12 education and school safety, and a director in our Education, Workforce, and Income Security Team--about a new GAO report on data breaches in public schools.
