Taking photos of my educational records?
August 28, 2013 7:20 AM Subscribe
My educational institution will provide me with in-person access to my student file (as is their responsibility under U.S. FERPA law), but will not allow me to make photocopies of anything in it. Can I legally take photographs of pages in the file with my iPhone's camera while I am reviewing it?

All I've been able to find out via online research is that the school is not legally required to provide me with copies of the records.
You're not my lawyer and this isn't legal advice.
