Opinion: Schools’ data may help stop future tragedies

Will Garbe, Opinion contributor – Cincinnati Enquirer |

“It’s one thing for state law to keep a high school graduate’s algebra and chemistry grades private. It’s an entirely different thing to say that, if the same graduate murders nine people in 30 seconds and himself is killed, relevant information kept by the school about the shooter’s past aggression shouldn’t be public. Ohioans are poorly served by this interpretation of the law, and the General Assembly must swiftly act to help prevent future slaughter.”
