WE_Coyote73 comments on Lawsuit: School officials forced 12-year-old who killed herself to hug bullies
> Up until the early 90's it was relatively easy for school administrators to deal with bullies by means of suspensions and expulsion for continual behavior. Then the lawyers started getting involved and started suing school districts and principals. They argued, among other things, that even violent students still had a right to an education and that out-of-school suspension/expulsion deprived them of that right. They also argued that because they are public school students the rights to procedural due process applied to them. The courts agreed with these and other arguments. The result was that it became exponentially more difficult to suspend/expel a student. For instance, in most cases it can take up to a year or more to expel a student from an individual campus due to the various procedures and hearings that have to be held in order to comply with the right to procedural due process and if the district loses the case they are on the hook not only for their legal expenses but also the expenses of the student.

Algeria orders total shutdown of internet during high school exam period
In an effort to prevent students from cheating during exams, the Algerian government has ordered a complete, countrywide Internet shutdown for several hours each day this week while exams take place.

ABC reports: "For several hours each day, while students are taking end-of-year tests, all of Algeria will be shut off from the world wide web in an effort to prevent a repeat of widespread cheating in 2016, when the questions were leaked in advance...The Minister of Education, Nouria Beghanbrit, posted a message to students on her Facebook page before the service was suspended, encouraging students to 'reject all behaviors that would undermine their efforts for success.' In 2016, the final exam questions were leaked online before the test took place, putting the results of thousands in question. The government then tried to limit only social media sites in 2017 but found that cheating was still occurring. That prompted the crackdown this year."

You can see the shutdown documented on Oracle's Internet Intelligence Map here: https://map.internetintel.oracle.com/?root=national&country=DZ

Al Jazeera reports that Iraq will institute a similar ban over the next two weeks. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/06/algeria-iraq-shut-internet-prevent-exam-cheating-180621074343644.html

This isn't the first time a country has shut down the Internet during high school exams. Iraq has done it before, as have authorities in Syria, Uzbekistan, and parts of India.

School is Literally a Hellhole – Arthur Chiaravalli – Medium
Technological innovations have often made these situations worse, not better. 24/7 online gradebooks invite the constant gaze of parents and administrators, objectifying both the student, whose performance is reduced to rows of numbers, and the teacher, whose diligence in continually “populating” these cells is on display. As with the Foucauldian panopticon, we feel we’re being watched whether anyone is watching or not.
