Massachusetts is one of nine states taking part in a pilot program in which the nonprofit inBloom seeks to streamline student data -- collecting and storing it in a uniform way. However, some are calling for the state to withdraw from the program over concerns that students' data could be a target for hackers. Already, two states participating in the pilot program -- Georgia and Louisiana -- have chosen not to allow student data on the group's database, and the program also has faced criticism in New York City.
