The long-awaited student privacy bill from the Feds is expected to land Monday. Early indications are it will be better for the Ed tech industry than for student-data privacy advocates and parents. Plus, the National Association of Realtors will release existing home sales on Monday. That number is expected to be up by around 2.5 percent. Will that make up for the disappointing January number when existing home sells fell by almost 5 percent. And it can be very expensive to run for office. Turns out, winning that office can also come with some unexpected expenses.
