As a card-carrying administrator, I loves me some FERPA. FERPA is the privacy law that forbids us from discussing an individual student's performance, or schedule, with anybody other than the student – read: parents – without a waiver signed by the student. It comes in handy when I get irate calls from parents asking why Johnny got a C instead of the A he obviously deserved: "Gee, I'd love to discuss that with you, but federal law says I can't." Good stuff. The folks over in Student Affairs consider FERPA pretty much the greatest thing since sliced bread.
