Private School Students Protest with Lock-in
A student at my school posted a mean comment about a math teacher on Facebook, saying “Ms. Smith is a f***ing bitch and is really a shitty teacher.” During school, ten other students “liked” the comment. The principal heard about the post and threatened to suspend the student who posted it and give anyone who “liked” it a detention. Can the school punish a student for venting on social media?
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.
