Profiling Bad Apples Should schools be in the business of predicting violent behavior among students? It's a roll call most school administrators sadly know all too well. American Association of School Administrators
When Students Become Informers -- Student informing, encouraged in American schools especially after the Columbine killings. New technologies, from 800 numbers to e-mail, makes informing easier than ever. Consider the parents of a teenage girl facing $40,000 in legal bills because their child did what officials have been urging them to do: tell school officials if she saw or heard anything suspicious. But the boy and his parents then sued his accuser, her parents, school and Los Angeles county officials. A Superior Court Judge threw out his suit, but the girl's family spent $40,000 in legal fees defending her. The school, which asked her to inform, refused to represent her after she did.
