"In Loco Parentis Goes Loco"



Per the WSJ editorial page, federal law sharply restricts colleges' right to disseminate information about their students, and one peculiar result is that they sometimes can't release transcripts to a student's own parents if the student is by law a nondependent. At the same time, college administrators can get sued for failing to prevent suicides by depressed students -- driving them further into a posture of in loco parentis protectiveness (more on higher ed).
