Are universities properly applying FERPA to journalists' requests for information about athletic programs and student-athletes? Are they withholding records, claiming they involve core educational and disciplinary records, when the documents should be open to the public? Also: Would implementation of an Ease of Access Test in Missouri and Florida, under their sunshine laws, allow journalists better access to municipal government information that is in the public interest?
