Here’s the problem....the anti-bullying crowd are showing up at the schools demanding teachers and administrators “do something” about the bullying.
Of course....they can only deal with things that happen at the school. Alot of the bullying is taking place online.
And now there is a tend in the thinking that goes like this....a nasty feud breaks out on FB in the evening, and it carries over into school the next day.
Parents want the school to “do something”
And...liberals being who they are...feel like they have to prove they are “doing something”
Since no one has figured out a way to monitor FB 24/7 on behalf of the school....this password business is probably the next step.
Yes - the school is overstepping , but I’m willing to bet the parents contributed to the problem too.
A side point. Have you noticed that many things are now called bullying the same way the word racism is used. If you don’t get you’re way or you’re the least bit offended, the other person is either a bully or a racist.
On one hand, I don't like the idea of on-line nazis. On the other, if the parents are going along with it, I can't cheer for the ACLU overruling the parents in a matter concerning their underage children.
On yet another hand, I really can't see anything that the kid posted on-line which would merit to this level of action. When I was that age, kids vented by passing notes, drawing cartoons and playground gossip using words and images more provocative than what this kid apparently posted on-line.
If caught, we might have our notes or cartoons confiscated or, if it was really serious, earn a trip to the principal or detention.
