How does confidentiality apply to an education and care services?

    In the US, there are laws that cover education, called FERPA, and laws that cover medical services, called HIPPAA. Both say that you have to hold information confidential. In the case of education, you can only give information about a student's academic performance, behavior, medical issues, etc. to the parents, and if one parent has primary custody, you need that parent's permission to give information to the other parents. After the age of 18, the student decides what information can be given to whom. We are not even allowed to tell the parents of our college students whether the student is attending class.

    In the case of care services, all medical information has to be kept confidential unless the patient or the patient's parents or guardian consents to its release.

    1. No one knows where in the world you are

    2. No one knows what field of study your referring to

    3. "Apply" in what way? legally? ethically? by standards of a professional licensing board?

    4. And apply to whom, exactly?
