Federal Gov't Wants To Mine College and University Student Data

From the BeSpacific (Law & Technology News) blog
by Sabrina I. Pacifica:

According to articles in the Chronicle of Higher Education,
the New York Times and the Boston Globe,
the National Center for Education Statistics (part of the
Dept. of Education) the [federal government] is
investigating a new system to significantly broaden
the collection of personal data on college and university
students beyond the scope of information related to
financial aid provided by the federal government.
