MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The following can be attributed to Randall Marshall, legal director of the ACLU of Alabama regarding Huntsville City Schools' monitoring of student social media accounts:

"The ACLU is concerned about the systemic monitoring of student speech across the country," said Randall Marshall, legal director of the ACLU of Alabama. "We are pursuing this issue by a public records request to the Huntsville City Schools to gather more information about its practices. They have yet to respond and if they continue to ignore our requests, we may have to take legal action to obtain the records."
