The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law passed in 1974 to protect the privacy of student education records. FERPA gives parents certain rights to their child’s education records; however, these rights transfer to the child when he or she turns 18. School districts are required to notify parents and students of their rights under FERPA each year.

This 2-part assignment will allow you to exhibit your understanding of FERPA and provide critical thinking responses to ethical scenarios involving student rights and student-teacher relationships.

Ethics Scenario 1:

Ms. Babble arrived in the teacher’s lunchroom for her lunch. She sits down and immediately begins to complain about one of her students and how awful her morning was because of the student. She uses the student’s name.

Respond to the following questions:

  • What does the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) say about the confidentiality of student information? How does it apply to this scenario?
  • What are the ramifications for this scenario if a substitute teacher sitting at the table is a relative of the student and reports her?

Ethics Scenario 2:

Mr. Playwright volunteered to work on the school play after school with students. The session ends at 5:30 p.m. each afternoon when he works on the play with the students. One student’s parent is habitually late. It is 6:30 p.m. Mr. Playwright has decided to take the student home instead of waiting any longer.

Respond to the following questions:

  • What are the personal ramifications for Mr. Playwright if he transports a student in his own vehicle?
  • What is your school district’s policy on the transportation of students?
  • What actions should you take before you transport a student in your personal vehicle?

Integrate research into your responses and cite sources used according to APA guidelines.
