I just saw a rather bizarre story out of Anderson, Indiana where middle school students were using a school-issued Apple iPad in class when a picture of their topless teacher suddenly popped up. The students, who did nothing but use the device, were suspended and are threatened with expulsion while the teacher has been subject to unspecified action by the school.
The students at Highland Middle School insist that the photo suddenly appeared due to the fact that the teacher’s iPhone was synched with the device.
Assistant Superintendent Beth Clark admits that it was just an accident but then why suspend the students? When student, Joshua Trout, described how he and his friends were just using the device when the image appeared in front of them. Unless there is an allegation that they sought such private files (which does not appear in these stories), it seems odd that they were somehow expected not to see what involuntarily appeared in front of them.
