New Hampshire scored WELL on the State Student Privacy Report compared to other states. That will CHANGE AND get worse if SB196 passes and signed into law in NH.
SB196 will REMOVE “informed consent,” from parents, before a non-academic survey is given to children in a public school. That means your children may be answering questions about their sex lives, gender identity, drug use, etc., and you may never know it.
4) In the private sector industry standards and best management practices require “opt in” as the standard.
carve out a special standard for schools when it comes to the issue of parental rights and privacy.
