Legal Aspects of Student Records. ERIC/CEM State-of-the-Knowledge Series, Number Twelve. NOLPE Monograph Series, Number Five.
Butler, Henry E., Jr.; And Others
In this monograph, the authors explore and enlighten the area of student records by researching the history, analyzing the case law, and interpreting the statutes in this sensitive field. The authors discuss the conflict between the student's right to privacy and the public's right to know and suggest a workable solution. After reviewing the history of the right to privacy, the authors analyze constitutional and statutory provisions, legal cases, and State board of education rules to determine the legal principles that govern the inspection, copying, and expunging of student records. In the appendixes, the authors have provided (1) a graphic presentation that compares State and Federal constitutions insofar as those documents apply to the individual's privacy, (2) an up-to-date statutory bibliography of State statutes, and (3) a tabular summary of State department of education rules concerning student records.
