My question involves education law in the State of: Tennessee
This spring semester I was suspended from my university. I withdrew from that school.
I was informed by several professors that my educational records were being passed around campus and reviewed with instructors and staff as part of a university training program on identifying problem students. I went back and reviewed copies of my signed FERPA statement to try to understand the laws I'm dealing with.
If I could prove this has happened or is currently happening, do I have a legitimate complaint with the US Department of Education? I don't know if I have a case or not because I'm not sure if this use of my records would be considered "legitimate needs" of the university and that's built on the assumption I could even prove this was going on.
