Nl: Student info often leaked

Karin Spaink provides an English summary of a news story on education sector breaches in the Netherlands:

The teachers union (Algemene Onderwijsbond) researched how often student information is accessible via Google. They found quite a lot: list of home addresses, student reports, progress reports, assessment reports. The union notified all the universities, faculties and training colleges that were at fault. It’s the second time that the Algemene Onderwijsbond embarked on such a student privacy scan. Most colleges and faculties remedied the situation as best as they could.
