Journalist members are eligible for exclusive, advance access to the Center for Democracy & Technology’s new report, surveying students, parents, and teachers on data and technology use in schools. 

Hear about how existing and novel technologies intersect with civil rights protections, from the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to current day, as questions of education data and technology increasingly raise issues of misuse and discrimination. 

Join the Education Writers Association on Monday, Sept. 18 at 2 p.m. Eastern for embargoed access to the CDT report. EWA will leave time for reporters’ questions. The embargo will lift on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 12:01 a.m.  (Please note: Reporters who attend are agreeing to abide by the embargo and won’t publish until after it’s lifted.)

As the nation’s K-12 schools continue their rapid adoption of educational technology, few are assessing its impacts on students, from longstanding technology like content filtering and blocking to COVID-era student-activity monitoring. Not to mention, generative AI abruptly burst onto the tech scene in the middle of the 2022-23 school year. The current state of education technology? It’s at a breaking point, according to CDT’s latest numbers.
