Freedom of Information - Portuguese Education

When Jaime returned to school after New Year, the results of all students had been posted for all to see. Only a week later were we requested to attend a parents' meeting where we were given an individual report on his progress. I objected to the public issuing of Jaime's results especially as it occurred before we had seen his individual report.

The next day I spoke to the school director about this and was informed that as the school is affiliated to the Portuguese Ministry of Education, it has to follow their rules and regulations which, in this case requires them to publish in the open the results of all students.

The only way I could collect my degree results (28 years ago) was by reading them on a public noticeboard in the centre of the town!
