I just read an article about the Federal Government wanting access to all students' "permanent records". And I remembered the time I went back to my old high school to review mine. The first thing I noticed was that every year when they asked about vocational aims, and I had duly put "cosmologist" they had corrected my obvious miss-spelling to "cosmotologist". Then I noticed that my principal had sent a note to the FBI informing them that I was a "potenital presidential assassin" a communist and an atheist! Now, my principal was a true paranoid schizophrenic, I just don't know if he was naturally that way or whether we had driven him to become so, but in either case; he was arrested the night after our graduation drunk outta his gourd, in his pajamas, in the middle of the street, shooting out street lights with a 12 gage shotgun (and that was the last any of us ever heard of him.)
Now, I wasn't the only student that he had done such things to, because many of my friends had similiar experiences. Nor do I doubt that my high school was't/isn't the only one being run by a lunetic. I do worry though about the potenital for unfortunate consequences if such information is made available to those in positions of power who do not comprehend the possible bias that might be attributable to unreliable resources.
