Please send a message to your Senators & Reps, urging them to oppose the College Transparency Act that would authorize federal surveillance of all college students throughout their lives
With little public notice and no hearings, the US House of Representatives passed the College Transparency Act, embedded in a much larger bill called the America Competes Act. The bill will now go to conference with the Senate. You can read the bill here, starting on p. 30. The CTA would authorize the federal government to collect the personal information of every student enrolled in college or another higher education institution, and track them through life.
Please send a message to your Senators and members of Congress, strongly urging them to oppose the passage of this bill, which would create a hugely invasive and risky federal surveillance system, without any ability for students to opt out of the system or ever have their data deleted.
