Sexting in schools is still a major issue

“Sexting” in schools is still a major issue...

“Sexting” in schools is still a major issue.

  • The issue of how to deal with “sexting” from a legal perspective has been in the news lately. Many local agencies are prosecuting “sexters” using child pornography statutes, which seem, to many, to be overly harsh1.

  • According to edweekly.com, a bill passed 28-2 in the state Senate this month, would make sending pornographic images a misdemeanor for youths, rather than the child pornography felony it is under current Texas law 2.

  • The Texas law also provides clearer definitions of sexting and provides for school districts to begin educating teens on the dangers of sexting2.

Some more recent stories…

  • In July of 2008, a high school student in Cincinnati hung herself after being taunted by peers because of a nude photo of herself that she sent to a boyfriend which he then forwarded to others 1.

  • Parents of a 13 year old girl in Maryland have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a school district after their daughter committed suicide after a boyfriend circulated a topless photo that she sent to him via MMS. The parents claim that the school could have done more to prevent the daughter’s suicide after she reported suicidal ideations to a school social worker2.

  • A 13 year old florida girl was found after hanging herself in her closet. The girl had sent photos of herself topless to a boy at school. The photo was sent to other students at her middle school and the girl began to be tormented at school. Parents of the girl partially blame the school for the girl’s death, stating that they should have done more to help3.
