Chalkbeat: Meeting video helps illuminate podcast dispute

Chalkbeat has an excellent update on the Know Justice Know Peace podcast dispute, after senior reporter Melanie Asmar viewed video of an August meeting between the four young women who created the podcast and senior Denver Public Schools officials. Chalkbeat, like Boardhawk, filed a Colorado Open Records Act Request for the video, which the district denied on grounds of a federal student privacy law.

The district subsequently invited Asmar and Boardhawk to view the video at district headquarters. Chalkbeat viewed the video before district communications officials responded to Boardhawk’s request for a viewing date.
