Keeping Your Student Records Confidential

Benjamin Lewin, a middle school science teacher from Manhattan, is currently under investigation for allegedly displaying the confidential medical records of a student on a big screen projection in front of the class. Of course, Lewin says that the records were displayed unintentionally, but the student’s mother is deeply concerned and currently suing him for failure to protect the privacy of her child, thereby inadvertently stirring other children to gossip about information they should never have seen.

Whether or not Lewin will actually face any serious consequences, his situation is not unusual. Educators are working with student records every day, from test grades and homework to behavior assessments and medical files. The trouble is being able to quickly lock up the more serious records, such as those that are protected by law, so that they will not only be kept from the accidental view of unsuspecting children, but that they will also be inaccessible to those who go searching for information that they have no right to know without permission.
