Mass Online Public Schooling Has Opened A Pandora's Box Of Privacy Concerns

Description

Virtual learning has fragmented the line between students' homes and schools, immediately sparking privacy scandals like Zoom-bombing. But according to Business Insider, the new school year has brought a rash of new problems, like parents appearing on-screen drunk, stoned, or nude. Or, school officials calling the police on a Black student who moved a BB gun in his room during class, to keep his brother from tripping over it. Many worry this increased reliance on remote learning has forced parents to choose between keeping their kids' schooling on track and protecting their civil liberties. Education professionals freely admit that in the rush to move learning online, little to no thought was given to privacy concerns, or the parents' on-camera behavior. Calling out a parent who's drinking a beer is really calling out the student, which isn't fair to the student who's not engaging in the behavior. It's not the teacher's responsibility, though, to manage the parent's behavior. Heather Johnson, an associate professor of science education at Vanderbilt University

  • Class Action Is In Session: Homeless Parents Sue Over Lack Of WiFi For Kids' Schooling

    A federal judge has ruled 114,000 homeless students in New York City are to have their day in court. Business Insider reports a judge has allowed a class-action lawsuit to advance to expedite the roll-out of WiFi to homeless shelters across the city. The suit was filed when homeless students were unable to access the internet in homeless shelters during periods of remote learning this year. Business Insider reports the city provided students with iPads with unlimited cellular data, but many have had trouble getting proper cell service. US District Judge Alison Nathan wrote in her opinion that homeless students are deprived of their right to education without internet connectivity. For as long as that deprivation exists, the City bears a duty...to furnish them with the means necessary for them to attend school. US District Judge Alison Nathan

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
