Security Alert ~ Sparta, New Jersey

Slide 26
“Pope John XXIII Regional High School, Effective immediately, and over student complaints, the teens were told to dismantle their My Space accounts or similar sites with personal profiles and blogs. Defy the order and face suspension, students were told.
     While public and private schools routinely block access to noneducational Web sites on school computers, Pope John’s order reaches into students’ homes.
     The primary impetus behind the ban is to protect students, McHugh said. The Web sites, popular forums for students to blog about their lives and feelings about their teachers and schools, are fertile ground for sexual predators to gather information about children, he said.”
