One great thing about homeschooling is there are no problems with seeing the student's records

Goldwater Institute Wins Court Victory for Public Records make me wonder just who do the school officials think the children belong to?  Them or the parents?

The post starts with:

The Arizona Court of Appeals today unanimously ruled in favor of the Goldwater Institute in rebuking the Congress (Ariz.) Elementary School District for its efforts to permanently deny public information sought by four parents and taxpayers.

Kind of interesting that a "tiny district with 112 kids" that can't afford to publish board meeting minutes or their school uniform survey results has the time and money to file lawsuits and appeals (and conduct school uniform surveys). Now they are going to have to pay the defendant attorney's fees. Since public school systems are net consumers and not revenue producers, they will spend someone else's money in either case.

Yeah, events like this make me a little crazy.

I wish there was some way to make the officials have to cough up some of their own money. They should suffer some, but it seems like they rarely do.
