One of the biggest bogeymen preventing real implementation of edtech in public education is the management of student information. Our cover story this month touches  on it. The topic has been making the rounds in more mainstream press too. Jordan Shapiro interviews Jim Shelton, acting deputy secretary at the U.S. Department of Education, in Forbes  about the government’s new guidelines on how to protect student data correctly. The nugget: “Let me add that in addition to our responsibility to create a robust regulatory framework to protect students, two other things are critical: (1) the ed tech industry needs to adopt some ethical standards with regard to the uses of student data and student privacy; and (2) we need to educate students and families to understand their rights and how to protect them.” Sounds right. —Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director
