We expend a lot of effort to make sure that only student first names and last initials (or sometimes use aliases to avoid even that) online publishing.
However, student first names, last names, and even pictures appear routinely on school web sites as a part of honor rolls, sports team listings, and other extracurricular activities.
Why the discrepancy? And what exactly is the concern with having student first and last names appear online?
