DAinfo Violating Privacy?

In the last year, DAinfo has been updated to provide more helpful features for students, such as class schedules and classmates.

However, students can also see every student’s address, cell phone number, and parents’ contact information. Do students really need to have access to this much information? Allowing such access for only teachers and advisors (who may want to contact parents through the year) would make more sense.

At school meeting, younger faculty members talked about controlling the amount of personal information they share online. And on Facebook, we can decide how much or how little information we share with others. On DAinfo, however, we are unable to control the information that appears online… isn’t this sending a mixed signal?
