Action Alert: Student Privacy

News Notes

STATEWIDE — A petition targeted at the North Carolina State Board of Community College on change.org comes on the coattail of the Board’s current debate on whether it would bar students from admission based upon health conditions.

Students would be asked to disclose their health history, and for some with particular medical conditions, this could mean that their enrollment might be denied.

WRAL.com reported that an ACLU staff member said that “the policy could be so broad and vague in nature, that it could lead to rampant abuse and misuse by college administrators.”

  1. just another way to make sure only those whom (in charge) will decide whom gets more education than others… just like the old days where many others were block from coming to college base on a skin color… I can only guess that in the next two decades there will be no privacy at all….
