Conservative Ladies of Washington, along with Parents Defending Education Action recently sent a letter to Governor Jay Inslee and OSPI Chris Reykdahl, asking them to protect Washington children from their data being used by American adversaries like the CCP.

“At least four districts in Washington have contracts with, raising serious national security concerns. This includes Federal Way Public Schools, Renton School District, Snohomish School District, and Tacoma Public Schools.

Even more alarming, this includes data and information from children of American service members, as the Department of Defense also has active contracts with”
