The School Board in Greeley, CO, refused to release to a student’s father a copy of a tape made on a school bus the day his son was disciplined for fighting. The father claims his son was simply defending himself. School officials said the privacy provisions of the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act prevent them from making school bus tapes public. About 80% of the district’s buses have video cameras. (5/12/08)
