Here is the transcript with Suzette Lopez:

SUZETTE LOPEZ, Parent: I’m trying to protect my kids, and there’s so much data collection that’s going on right now that we we’re not even aware of.

JOHN TULENKO: Suzette Lopez is a graphic designer who sends her children to Miami public schools.

SUZETTE LOPEZ: It’s these third-party vendors that are what we’re partnering with, that we’re bringing them in. But then, how much oversight really is there with these partners? Who’s keeping an eye on that data?
