How Much Privacy Are Students Surrendering to Attendance-tracking App?
Concerned about Big Brother surveillance of students?

“Late last month, soon after University of Missouri-Columbia students returned to school from winter break, stories began appearing about the university’s expansion of a program to track student attendance using an app owned by Arick LLC called “SpotterEDU,” which the university previously used in its sports programs.” . . .
