But looking forward to the next academic year, administrators and faculty agreed they would have to resume some in-person classes for the fall semester, Aaron Rester, assistant vice president of web development at Roosevelt University, told EdScoop. The question then became: “How do we do that safely?” he said. Betsy Foresman reports.

New York bans biometrics in schools

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation on Tuesday making his state the first to ban the use of facial recognition technology and other biometric technology in both public and private K-12 schools.

Colin Wood has the details.
