Private School Students Protest with Lock-in
I’m on the student newspaper and I wanted to find out why my school made so many changes to our school lunch program recently. I submitted a FOIA request asking to see all of the principal’s email messages in the past year. The school told me it was going to charge me $5,000 to turn over the emails! I can’t afford that, so I can’t do the story. Is this right? Can the school charge me this much? Aren’t the emails public info?
FERPA is a law designed to protect the privacy of students. While it seems simple, how and when this law applies can be a little complicated.
