When we read about the Federal Government's request that states submit what we in the education world call "PII" (Personally Identifiable Information) via "insecure email," we immediately thought, "Spotlight's security measures are MUCH more rigorous, even when we're working with a tiny school district, and with, say, third graders' first names and their grades in language arts -- not millions of adults' social security numbers and addresses."
So with that, we write:
Dear Mr. Kobach,
The Spotlight Team
P.S. Please tell the folks at Gizmodo that it's called non-secure data.
