Premier Christy Clark says she is concerned about the massive privacy breach over students’ information.
This, after her government said it lost a hard drive containing the records of more than three million students in BC and the Yukon.
As well, parents have complained they received details of other students’ personal information on printouts for their own children
Clark concedes privacy is a huge concern for parents: “Nobody wants government reaching into their lives and into their homes any more than we already do.”
“We really do want to make sure that it works for the people of the province, as we do for all of the tech investments that we make.”
The new 95-million-dollar MyEducation BC software has also been linked to privacy breaches in Nanaimo and Prince George.
That software was brought in to replace BCeSIS, which was plagued with problems as well.
