During a meeting with my child’s principal the principle suggested that I was recording the conversation (I was not). It then occurred to me that he was secretly recording the conversation. I immediately requested a copy of the recording and a transcript of it and later, in writing via email requested a transcript of the conversation. My request was ignored. My email has not been returned.
