I would imagine that if a teacher wanted to convince children that the internet — which is not especially dangerous for kids — actually is especially dangerous for kids, there must be a myriad of ways to go about it. One could, for instance, simply assign a Law & Order SVUmarathon for homework. What the teacher probably shouldn’t do is call a class assembly on the subject and then blast a bikini picture from one of the attending students’ Facebook accounts to everyone attending.

Schools may mean well, but this strategy is just not appropriate and risks devastating results for the student publicly identified and shamed.
