Remington, Lee R.
Journal of Law & Education, v31 n4 p459-68 Oct 2002
Discusses history and purpose of state open-records laws. Surveys how parties make open-records requests, various causes of action, and sanctions for noncompliance. Examines how open-records requests related to district investigations can implicate the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act. Attempts to find appropriate balance between public's "right to know" and problems associated with disclosure of internal investigations. (Contains 70 references.) (Author/PKP)
