State report on Virginia Tech released

30 Aug

The state panel struck by Virginia Governor Tim Kaine released its report on the April shootings yesterday. Once again, the report has some strong comments on the need for information-sharing, at one point stating, “Information privacy laws cannot help students if the law allows sharing, but agency policy or practice forbids necessary sharing.”

At this point I have only scanned the report and read the summary, but may post a comment after reading the (lengthy) report in full.

See the University’s internal “Interface” report here and the special report to the President of the United States here. I’ve posted about the incident here and written about here.
