Why are these kids using twitter while in school? (I was told by several kids in the class & my own child these girls tweet during class all the time). What are these kids learning? This school is sinking fast. We need new leadership all around.

Or maybe the kids who are allowed to tweet during class need new parents!

You may be right , however, the parents are not in the classroom.

It doesn't say they used twitter in school. It says the fight, which happened in school, was due to items posted on twitter.

My child is in the class and so are other children who have all said they use twitter in class often.

I thought they couldn't have their phones with them in class.

They use computers

The IT people at SV should have Twitter and sites like this blocked from student use. They should only have access to educational website content.

I agree with you. We, as parents limit the computer , twitter, facebook ect. at home but the kids go to school and use it? I understand some teachers are texting so why are the kids not permitted to carry cell phones???? Ask your children, they can verify what goes on.SV is in desperate need of new leadership.

The fact that this is making news on the patch is rather sad... As to the point with twitter in the class room, an education is what you make of it. As a student at Saucon you can choose to pay attention and receive a great education from well trained staff. Or you can start fights on twitter, the choice is up to the student...
