Student Right to Know Act
The Student Right-to-Know Act, passed by Congress in 1990, requires institutions eligible for Title IV funding, under the Higher Education Act of 1965, to calculate completion or graduation rates of certificate- or degree-seeking, full-time students entering that institution, and to disclose these rates to current and prospective students. Every institution that participates in any Title IV program and is attended by students receiving athletically related student aid is required to disclose graduation/completion rates of all students as well as students receiving athletically related student aid by race/ethnicity, gender and by sport, and the average completion or graduation rate for the four most recent years, to parents, coaches, and potential student athletes.

(Bullying has become a major problem in schools around the world and social media makes it easy for students to post negative messages and spread rumors. Adults can fight against this by modeling kindness in their speech and actions, as well as providing opportunities for students to show kindness to one other. There’s never an excuse to not be kind, even if you’re dealing with a frustrating situation.)
