Northfield is on the front page of the Strib again today: Teachers broke law by posting top test scores. "In an advisory opinion, the http://www.brooksfieldschool.org/ agreed with a parent who complained that posting her son’s test results in class for all to see was a violation of state law protecting student data."
I was informed about this situation earlier this year when the parent, Kathie Galotti, brought it to my attention, asking for my opinion about the situation. I contacted her this morning when I saw the story and got her permission to post PDF’s of her letter to the Dept. and the subsequent ruling. I think there are still issues to discuss since the practice is evidently still continuing, albeit with parental permission of individual students. One thing is for sure, students learn from us. Thanks to ClassDojo!
