This is another lame way for parents to keep control of their children by the help of technology. We wonder what’s next: install a chip in each person when they were born for government controls of its citizens. ... [More]
This happens at The Beis Rivkah all-girl high school in Brooklyn, NY. Instead of asking all students to delete their facebook account, they actually fine students $100 each. So there is no warning. It seems that you have to pay up first to learn your lesson. We couldn’t help but wonder if this school is in America. Yes, it is! What happened to Freedom of Speech?
