Speaking of student privacy, Senator Markey gets it

Nice one from our new(est) Massachusetts senator, Edward Markey, who recently sent a letter to Secretary Duncan, expressing concerns regarding the sharing of student information. He's sent them twelve questions, and asks for a response back by November 12.
As noted by EdWeek:
A former, longtime member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Markey's been a player in attempting to craft policies to protect student data for year. He was a co-author of the  Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act, which became law in 1998.
I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
