ChatGPT in K-12 Education: Growing Approval Amid Concerns

A survey by Impact Research reveals a shift in teachers’ and parents’ attitudes towards ChatGPT, a popular AI chatbot from 2022. Sponsored by the Walton Family Foundation, the study highlights the growing interest in incorporating AI tools in K-12 education, with many believing ChatGPT enhances student learning. Despite this positivity, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission is investigating OpenAI, ChatGPT’s developer, over potential data breaches and reputational risks. This scrutiny occurs as AI faces heightened regulatory attention, with pushes for new guidelines from both the Biden administration and Congress.
