    Masterful Columbus Dispatch job examining FERPA and how universities are misusing it to cover up their dirty laundry:

    And, in a take-out, tOSU's sins specifically:

    Embarrassing, to say the least, the lengths some schools are going to, like this:
    Yeah, those are education records, alright. ::)
