If you haven’t noticed, the State of Illinois enacted a law that requires students to turn over their usernames and passwords to the school. Evidently, this is to prevent or control cyber bullying.
I am not sure what to think about this because I am one of those people who threaten to delete my Facebook on a regular basis. So I asked an expert on the subject—my middle school daughter.
Father to daughter: What would you do if you had to give your passwords for social media over to the school?
Daughter: Wait. What?
Father: What would you do if you had to give your passwords for social media over to the school?
Daughter: Wait. What? Am I in trouble?
Father: No. Just theoretically, what would happen? Would you still use Instagram if the teachers had your passwords?
Father: OK. Illinois just passed a law that could require students to give up there passwords.
Daughter: (Blank stare. Horrified look.)
My conclusion: There must be an app for that! If not, let’s get started!
