Attorney General Hector Balderas claims Google is using its education services package that is marketed to school districts, teachers and parents to spy on children and their families.

He says the company is mining data without parental consent on physical locations, websites visited, saved passwords and other information.

Google disputes the allegations, saying the service allows schools to control account access and requires they obtain parental consent when necessary.
