The U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 27 will hear a case dealing with Oklahoma's policy of peer grading --pupils grading each other's work in class -- a policy some parents find invasive of privacy and family rights. The court will weigh an appellate court decision ruling peer grading is not a violation of FERPA, the law that stipulates no school receiving federal funds may release students' educational records without the consent of parents.
