NEW YORK (AP) - A group of New York City public school parents has filed a lawsuit to block state education officials from sharing student information with the data-storage firm inBloom.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in state Supreme Court in Albany.
It says that disclosing identifiable student data without parental consent violates state privacy laws.
New York has signed up with the Atlanta-based inBloom to store student data including test scores in the cloud.
Parents in New York and elsewhere have raised privacy concerns about the company.
A spokesman for the state Education Department said the department could not comment on pending litigation.
A spokesman for inBloom said he could not comment either. But he said inBloom believes technology will continue to play an increasingly important role in supporting teachers, students and families.
