  • political affiliations or beliefs of the student or student’s parent or guardian:
  • mental or psychological problems of the student or the student's family;
  • sex behavior or attitudes;
  • illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating or demeaning behavior;
  • critical appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents have close family relationships;
  • legally recognized, privileged and analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians and ministers
  • religious practices, affiliations or beliefs of the student or student’s parent or guardian; or
  • income,(other than that required by law to determine eligibility for participation in a program or for receiving financial assistance under such program);
