Rachel has asked 20 000 students, “What is something that you do on the internet at home that you’re not allowed to?” The results are confronting and enlightening and it is amazing the number of kids who admit to trolling/bullying online. Porn is out of control. Online gaming etc. What is interesting here is that it is the students’ words that speak for themselves. Why are schools responsible for what is happening in kids’ bedrooms at 1 in the morning?
