'Renegade Reporters' take on children's digital privacy concerns
In Elissa Brent Weissman’s novel Renegade Reporters, Ash and her best friend Maya get sacked from the daily newscast at their middle school in Federal Hill, so they start their own news team, and soon discover that the software company with the contract for all the public schools in Baltimore is collecting a lot more data about pupils than anyone knew.
Join Weissman virtually this Thursday for her book launch with the Ivy Bookshop. Details here.
Then we ask a real-life legal expert--UB Law Professor Michele Gilman--about the shortfalls of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. Find more information about privacy rights and protecting your privacy.
