+ - School bans gizmos due to YouTube upload

Submitted by Gray
Gray (5042) writes "École Secondaire Mont-Bleu has banned all personal electronic devices and suspended two 13-year-old girls after one uploaded to YouTube a camera phone video of their teacher yelling at the other. After the video was posted on the popular internet video site, the teacher was so embarrassed that he stayed home from work, where he remains on stress leave. The teachers' union is now trying to get all personal electronic devices banned from all schools in Western Quebec. Abdu Mansouri, a spokesman for the teachers' union is quoted stating, "The teacher will be the master of his class — a closed class and confidential." Is this the right approach to take on what is bound to be increasingly an issue as digital cameras become more and more ubiquitous?"

C for yourself.
