PPRA gives parents some level of control over their child’s:
- A) Medical records
- B) Educational records
- C) Participation in third-party survey research or exposure to instructional materials developed by researchers.
- D) Ability to opt-out of health education (specifically, sexual health education).
Participation in third-party survey research or exposure to instructional materials developed by researchers.
Why option A, B and D are incorrect:
The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) or (FERPA) as a body which seeks to protect children from involving in any research studies and they also protect their freedom and rights from unwanted intrusion. It also protects parents right in such a way that if any student who want to participate in research or studies he or she must obtain permission from their parents beforehand taking part in any survey. So, this law is obliged to student’s rights as well parent’s right; therefore, Medical records, Educational records and health education are out of their amendment.
Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA):
This law defends the rights of young school students from exploiting by institutions.
This law makes sure that the different research organizations who are conducting the research provide available instruction materials for inspection. It gives the assumption that parents can review the submitted material before granting any consent.
Further, the PPRA ensures the parental consent is an essential part of any analysis, research or study that is conducted in school and if the research had got assistance from educational, then the parental consent must be provided. Therefore, PPRA provides parents with the right to control over participation in third-party survey research or exposure to instructional materials developed by researchers.
