Get 'em used to a police state at an early age, and they'll never bother anyone about stupid things like rights and liberties and just bend over whenever someone with "authority" tells them to.

TFA says teachers will have the power to search "for" mobile phones, not "search mobile phones"

Any other source for your claim that teachers can actually search the contents of a phone subby?

FTA...or the first time, staff in English state schools will be able to search pupils without consent for any banned item they believe could be used by troublemakers to disrupt lessons.

An Education Act - granted Royal Assent on Tuesday - allows them to frisk pupils' clothing and search bags or lockers for equipment such as mobile phones, iPods, iPads, MP3 players and other electronic gadgets.

Good. Children don't deserve rights. Can't get drafted, you see.

I was going to post how this never could have happened when I was in high school because teachers physically didn't have the power to search anyone, but then I saw it was the UK, so not really surprising.

Evil Kirk vs Bad Ash: I can has password lock?


This. I went to Prison School, erm, high school, during the era of cell phones and texting. If you got caught with your phone, you would take out the battery, and only then give it to the teacher. If that. Most us just never gave them to them. That would really piss-off the old timers.

So kids, post all sexting pics to the internet as soon as possible!
 
2011-11-17 05:26:23 AM
"The move follows a series of incidents in which pupils have taken photos and videos of teachers then uploaded compromising images on to the internet."

And so the response is to confiscate cellphones and cameras from all students because it's easier to do that instead of the more difficult to impossible solution of stopping teachers from doing things that embarrass the school? Yeah, that's real logical

Subby hated his/her teachers so much because he/she was terrible at reading comprehension and blamed them.

The reasons for a student to be carrying a cell phone at all times while in a classroom are few and far between. The only thing that comes to mind is medical emergency. There are plenty of hours after school for texting/sexting/etceterexting.

People complain up and down about teachers these days, but have you seen/heard what they have to deal with? I'm 25, and current high school students in this city are 10 times worse than they were when I went to that same school. It's time for us to realize that, as a society, not everyone needs to go to college-prep classes because not everyone is intellectually-curious enough for them to matter. The world needs electricians, plumbers, and mechanics (in the first two cases, DESPERATELY), and we should be expanding vocational programs. Engineers are great, but unless you have somebody to actually build the stuff they design, you're still SOL.

My son was asked for his cell phone at school and did exactly what you noted: handed it over minus the battery. (The teacher is a decent guy - and my kid should not have been texting.) I did tell him that if he was ever asked for the battery, he had the right to refuse. In this particular instance, they had the right to seize, not to search.

Given that the examples given in this thread suggest the US is worse it's a strange reaction. US schools search content of phones, UK schools just search for the phones, not content.

This seems important. What sort of compromising images/video are the students putting up?

Unless they are going upskirt or under the bathroom stall door, nothing should be happening in the classroom that couldn't be seen by the world. If you are losing your shiat on your students to the extent that it would be worth the youtube click, it's time to retire.

This story is in England, but thinking about here, kids graduating from HS today don't remember much about life prior to 9/11, or the WOD. They figure it's a police state like it's always been and don't know what the fuss is about waterboarding, warrantless wiretaps, police UAV's (coming in 2013), tasings, electronic communication eavesdropping and collection, TSA searches, police making MD income, militarized SWAT raids, police video and facial recognition software, gov't building photo rules, vehicle tracking, and so on. A few more years and that's the permanent paradigm.

We are not allowed to search students' cell phones in the school where I teach because we have been told if there are nakey pics on it we are technically in possession of child pron.

soo... they dont want the kids being able to prove their claims of teacher/pupil abuse??????
note to teachers, if you dont want to be recorded in a compromising position IN CLASS, maybe dont do compromising stuff in class?

When did a kid have rights to that stuff anyway? This law just puts the school system back to the norm of 20+ years ago. Unfortunately it took a law to get it there.

Do you really think it would have gotten this bad if parents actually parented?

My Highschool banned personal phones and pagers (it was a while ago). I don't see why precious snowflakes need a cell phone while at school. Silence it and bury it in your bag, no one will give two shiats about it. Carry it around, flaunt it, take pictures, surf fark, make a pain in the ass out of yourself, and LO, regulation from on high.


It's like they never taught any of you farkwits about cause and effect.
