Don’t you wish your kids would think before they speak, let alone before they tweet pictures of bongs on Twitter? Well, now is the time to have that discussion with them about the impact of social media and school board officials stalking them.
The Glendale Unified School District paid $40,000 to a firm to monitor its students Twitter accounts. Yes, that is right – when there is a shortage of teachers, low moral, un-monitored class rooms and teacher pay ranks up there with the guy at the car wash – this is where the school district in CA deems it a priority to invest.
Now, they can try to use security as an excuse but we would like the school district to know that a number of our writers in California would like to offer to become security guards during school hours at $40.000 a year, to assist with security!
What needs to happen is very simple: The parents and the students of the Glendale Unified School District need to blast the council members for squandering tax dollars and tweet their asses off sharing to the names, phone numbers and home addresses of all the Glendale Unified School District Teachers and Staff – especially, the Council!
