Remember the privacy rights we had in school? The right to have your locker searched by the school. The right of teachers to corporal punishment… A Florida state court supported a school district against a Florida news outlet, in their request for non-identifying information from student records. The request was made under the state public records act but the school countered with the “privacy rights” argument. Fine. But this is not a principled stand. Where do the public schools come down on student free speech. Huh, put that in your hat and smoke it.
