Risks when your local school shares data it collects on your child with others
They had a “hot” time in a Glasgow High School chemistry class last Friday with an experiment that turned out to be “all wet.”
The Glasgow Daily Times reports (subscription for full article) that a silly experiment to ignite clouds of natural gas in a classroom (lighting fires in a classroom – what a great idea – NOT!) did the inevitable – triggering the sprinkler located right overhead.
That wound up soaking all sorts of technology devices and eventually flooded numerous classrooms.
This silly stunt got caught on video.
And then came a demonstration that anything caught in a computer – such as sensitive data schools collect on students – can live forever. You see, the original video was removed from You Tube, probably at the request/demand of the school. However, copies of the video keep cropping up in You Tube like mushrooms, anyway.
