Fed threatens School Principals if they don't spy on their Students 24/7
One local progressive here loves to shout Nazi, Jackbooted thugs and brown-shirts a lot.
But it's not the Right or the Teaparty that is advocating even threatening School officials with lawsuits and maybe worse if they don't monitor
students Facebook activity. No not just during school time but 24/7 day and night 7 days a week.
"The agency’s threats, which are delivered in a so-called “Dear Colleague” letter,” have the support of White House officials, including President Barack Obama, who held a Mar. 10 White House meeting to promote the initiative as a federal “anti-bullying” policy.
The letter says federal officials have reinterpreted the civil-rights laws that require school principals to curb physical bullying, as well as racist and sexist speech, that take place within school boundaries. Under the new interpretation, principals and their schools are legally liable if they fail to curb “harassment” of students, even if it takes place outside the school, on Facebook or in private conversation among a few youths."
There is one very disturbing sentence among a very disturbing story, "federal officials have reinterpreted the civil-rights laws", and the other fact that "Private" conversations are deemed no longer "private".
I didn't know that the Executive branch had disbanded the Supreme Court, so they could start interpreting laws for us and then deciding on rather they should be enforced or not.
Another factor that is equally as disturbing is that Facebook apparently "happily" agreed to give up information to the Whitehouse on their users. Students today the rest of us tomorrow?
One other disturbing fact is the You will be sent to the re-education camps part of this and again not just the student but the family and even the "Community".
"Following the discovery of “harassment,” officials may have to require mandatory training of students and their families, according to the Ali letter. “The school may need to provide training or other interventions not only for the perpetrators, but also for the larger school community, to ensure that all students, their families, and school staff can recognize harassment if it recurs and know how to respond…"
So now the Federal Government is forcing Schools to spy on your children by threat of fines or law-suits. Whats next forced interrogations by Federal officials of your kids to "give up" their parents radical views or egad gun ownership?
"California's assembly bill 2068 would require children to be asked personal questions such as whether their parents spank them, keep guns in the house, or watch violent television shows. It would require "mental health screenings" as part of the physical exam children take before entering school or in county health screening programs."
