CBS in Los Angeles reports:
The Glendale Unified School District has hired a Hermosa Beach company to monitor public social media posts made by its students to find out when teens are in trouble or causing it.
Superintendent Richard Sheehan said Geo Listening is analyzing the posts of 13,000 students at eight Glendale middle and high schools.
Read more on CBSLA, who quote one student’s accepting attitude and one parent’s support. I wonder if any of the students actually object to this monitoring of their conduct outside of school. In my opinion, they – and their parents – should.
