Someone takes a picture of you, with an unfortunate text below. You’re the one who gets in trouble. That’s the story behind a A student at a top notch Magnet school… who is now punished by being at a school for what amounts to juvenile near-delinquents. With the advent of technology has come the advent of schools snooping and not allowing anything to chance, even though they are not a threat. Sickening.

More and more schools are investing in technologies that scan social media posts, school assignments and even student emails for potential threats. Privacy experts say the trade-offs aren’t worth it.
