Houston ISD To Band Students From Sexting

The Houston Independent School District (HISD) school board is expected to revise the Student Code of Conduct to ban students from sending sexually provoactive photos by phone.

How in the HELL are they going to enforce that?

Read the story in the Houston Chronicle

"It's a response to an issue that principals brought up. A girlfriend sends a picture to a boyfriend, who sends it to a friend, and pretty soon it's all over the school. To the extent it's an issue. We want to put kids on notice we're not going to tolerate it." - Hans Graff, Houston ISD's assistant general counsel.

At least when they catch someone it's an official policy so they can legally hammer them for it...

Good luck with that. Of course, it should be illegal. Our school's personnel read texts when teachers take a phone. That has led to students now refusing to give up their phone with the battery in it. This has caused more than a few incidents. Idiots.

Most governnents have a problem with moral issues. Our government has done everything possible to tear down the one unit that can solve this issue - The American Home! The moral issues are better taught at HOME. Students that have a good home make better grades and handle the moral issues better.
