YouTube founder Steve Chen a “solid B” student

October 12, 2006

News:  Don’t you love it when you become famous and reporters start digging up your biography.  The Chicago Sun Times went back to YouTube co-founder Steve Chen’s former high school teachers to discover that he was a “solid B student.”

Analysis:  That’s what people mean when they told you as a kid that “this will go down on your permanent record.”  I wonder, though, isn’t this a violation of FERPA to disclose someone’s grade?  (Maybe the school did not receive any federal funds to be regulated by FERPA.)
