Owasso v Falvo Court Case
An illustration of what happened during the Owasso v Falvo Court Case.
Exchange papers, we are going to grade them. Then call out the grade to me.
It was awful. We took a quiz and I didn't do well on it. Then the teacher had everyone call out the scores, which embarrassed me. Everyone thinks I'm stupid because of how low my grade was.
How was school, Phil?
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires schools to keep student records confidential.
Can the school really reveal my sons scores to the whole class? He feels terrible that everyone knows his grade.
FERPA prevents schools from making student information public without consent. The teacher violated FERPA in allowing students to correct and read aloud the grades of other students.
FERPA only applies to final student records. Having students grade each other's work is a teaching technique that has been around for years. It is no different than having a student solve a problem on the board.
