A school district in Southern California has hired a private firm to comb through the cyber lives of its 14,000 middle- and high-school students, looking for signs of trouble.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the Glendale Unified School District is spending $40,000 to have the firm monitor social media use among the district’s students. School officials want to know if the kids are posting suicidal thoughts, obscenities or comments intended to bully fellow students.
