“Schools have long been targets for cyber thieves and criminals. … Criminals are seeking to extort money from school districts and other educational institutions on the threat of releasing sensitive data from student records. In some cases, this has included threats of violence, shaming, or bullying the children.”
– U.S. Department of Education, in a 2017 letter addressing teachers, parents, and K-12 education staff
