Jen Persson discusses DefendDigitalMe & the Digital Economy Bill

Do you know how children's data in school is handled? School records for every named pupil aged 2-19, are uploaded to a national pupil database (NPD) at the Department for Education (DfE) every term, from where it is shared with companies and organisations including journalists.

In September 2016, the DfE started to collect nationality data with the intention of sharing it with the Home Office Immigration Enforcement, Removals Casework team. What’s next? Find out how all this data from schools, as well as new laws on student data, and other administrative datasets, might be affected by the Digital Economy Bill. Come along to find out more and what you can do to get involved to #BoycottSchoolCensus and refuse, retract and resist this data collection.
