The Senate will take up the proposed nuclear agreement with Iran when they get back from
their month of fundraising their working vacations with their constituents, and the Union of Concerned Scientists helps you tell them to support the framework of the Iran nuke deal. It's going to be an ugly, ugly battle, full of misinformation and irrelevant information, the latter including ZOMG THEY STILL CHANTZ TEH DEATHZ TO TEH AMERICAZ IN TEH STREETZ!!!!! It doesn't matter how Iran feels about this deal. Hell, it doesn't matter how anyone feels about this deal. It only matters whether this deal will keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and this deal will do that, with its rigorous inspection schedule and the threat of reinstituting economic sanctions against Iran if they violate the agreement. And people who think that only war with Iran will keep us safe are the same people who said Iran should unilaterally give us everything we want as a precondition to negotiations, and people like that don't understand what negotiation is.
Meanwhile, the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood joins with the Parent Coalition for Student Privacy to help you tell Congress to enact vigorous legislation to protect kids' privacy in our schools. The vast majority of schools now use cloud services for things like classroom instruction, bus route planning, and testing, which means that a lot of personal student data -- names and addresses, Social Security numbers, test scores, et cetera -- sits out there where hackers and corporations can exploit it. The solutions the CCFC and the PCSP propose? Notifying parents before disclosing (or re-disclosing) any personal student info to third parties outside the school district; complete bans on selling student information and advertising within instructional materials; stronger encryption standards for student info; and vigorous enforcement, including specified punishments for violations. That all sounds common-sensical to me, but Congressional efforts to protect student privacy have been weaker, likely to "protect" big corporate donors. But they ain't the boss of us.
