Teachers Told To Find And Delete 'sexting' Images On Pupils' Phones To Stop Them Being Shared Online

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2547259/Teachers-told-delete-sexting-images-pupils-phones-stop-shared-online.html

Home Office Norman Baker says teachers must use powers to search

But Tory MP Sarah Wollaston wants cyberbullies to have smartphone ban

The practice of sexting is now seen as 'pretty normal' by youngsters

More than half of children say they have received an intimate message

Charities have seen increase in children concerned about online bullying

Teachers have been ordered to search for and delete ‘sexting’ images from pupils’ mobile phones to stop them being spread online.

This policy appears a disaster waiting to happen with accusations of invasions of privacy etc....

The law itself appears to be in danger of becoming an ass as you can't take intimate photo's of yourself if you are under 18.

The "child"* in possession of pictures of "child porn"** has already committed an offense. Bang'em up I say! No, not like that, put 'em behind bars. No, not Wetherspoons! Somewhere where they can't get in trouble, like an approved children's home, where they can get to meet famous celebrities....oh, wait....

* with the possibility of childhood being extended into the 20's...

** themselves, even fully clothed see COPINE scale

The law now allows pictures of your legal wife, if she is under 18 or appears to look under 18, to be classified as child porn. Including the pics of your reception - well, they ARE posed. See SAP/Copine scale

The west has become a toxic environment for children: Sexualisation of pop culture, infantilisation of adults, welfare dependency, feminism, family breakdown, marginalised fathers, educational slide, junk food, social services run amok, mass medicalisation of children, consumerism and so on...

It's no wonder birth rates are so low. Who'd want to bring up a child in this society?

Pedophiles in the education system will love this. Confiscate the phones of children they like the look of to search for naughty pics or videos. Another boneheaded move by those that know what's best for us all.

I've noticed kids getting phones earlier and earlier. Went along with a mate to pick up her 8 year old after school and all the kids were playing with iPhones and Galaxies etc. You're ******ing 8 years old! What do you need a £400 phone for? Why do you need a mobile at all actually? Who are they calling?

It's not actually against any law to have an 'intimate' picture of yourself on your own phone, even if you are a child, is it?

Technically, if you are a child, yes. In the case of a selfie, you have "made" a picture of a child (yourself). If the photo was taken by someone else, then presumably they can be convicted as well - one person for "making" and the phone's owner for "possession".

Any legal bods here to comment?

Indeed and/or ban them altogether within school age (maybe allow a cut down version purely for emergency messages) - it would be good to see the hypocritical fuss the manufacturers make about it and the politicians in their pockets.

If the child is in school any "emergency" messages can be phoned into the school (like they used to be before mobiles) and the child informed/taken out of class. No need to have a phone in school at all?

Reaping what they sowed. Seem to remember mobile phones were once the preserve of adults, then post waveband sell-offs for mega amounts of money (thanks Gordon), SMS messaging took off and a whole new market emerged - kids. Texts became big business and the phone for some reason indispensable to children (safety was the sell).

Now everyone has a phone - even 7 year olds (in school). Technology moved on and the rest is human nature.

must also be illegal to look at yourself having a ***** if you are under 18.

What a load of nonsense. Children are grown ups too, except when they are children.

Nokia 108, all the phone anyone under the age of 16 needs, surly?

When I spawn I think I'll lead by example and ditch the smartphone!

Quite right, what actual need is there for kids (or grown ups, for that matter) have for a smartphone. At best all they are is a distraction, it must be a nightmare for teachers to get any kids to pay attention.

I work in a college and most lunch breaks you see groups of students all fiddling around on and staring at their phones barely communicating with each other it is rather sad.

When I was at school I rubbed girls' tits, and then had them look at my nob! I communicated quite well.

Very. Teenagers can be very self-conscious, shy and awkward. It takes an effort of will to talk to strangers. Yet they don't want to appear to be an isolated loner just stood there not talking to anybody.

So bring on the magic phone: things to distract you, to make you smile, make you appear busy and self-contained to others.

It must be destroying social skills. I have been on a steady curve from awkward and gauche to happily chat to anybody and usually make them laugh. That has come about from a vast number of social interactions; phones are stopping those interactions and hence skills developing.

When interviewing younger candidates some are as chipper as teenagers ever were but others are barely articulate and have the manner of somebody five years younger.

Just as long as you didn't take pictures.

No need for mobile phones in school and heaven knows that they're an absolute bloody disaster, bringing kids up who are unable to cope without them instead of them just being a useful tool every now and then (enough adults seem to have the same attitude mind you).
