US won’t allow release of bomb suspect’s college records

The US Department of Education has denied a request by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth to release student records of accused Boston ­Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, saying that doing so would violate federal privacy law.

“It appears that the academic and financial records that have been requested would be protected by [federal law] and that the university may not ­release them without the consent of the student,” a department official wrote.
