This can all be found on the internet
I don't really care either. I just think it's interesting.
I mean, it does say that private schools generally aren't subject to FERPA, so I think making the assumption that it does is probably not a great one to be making. But whatever.
No, it says, "Private and parochial schools at the elementary and secondary levels
generally do not receive such funding and are, therefore, not subject to FERPA."
If an institution receives federal funding it's subject to FERPA.
Regardless, I hope we get more decisions today one way or another.
