So the Oxford kid who we wrote about last night who took a video of his teacher and uploaded it to Twitter in a ploy to get him fired, has issued an apology and we just wanted to briefly acknowledge it because he did the right thing:
When you do bad things, we have no problem calling you out. When you do the right thing, we’d be hypocritical not to do the opposite. Some people have suggested that this is a fake apology that was forced by his parents. Even if they did, so what? All that means is he has parents who care about him, probably read him the riot act, and actually held him accountable for his behavior. The same can’t be said for a LOT of kids and parents out there. I think this is a case of a kid who made a really stupid decision and learned an even more important life lesson. And that’s what life is all about – learning from your mistakes.
But this wasn’t about just one kid. This is an epidemic and a problem in schools when every single kid has a cell phone. There’s no reason for kids to be on cell phones in class, and if they are caught, then it should be dealt with seriously. Think of all the things you can do with a cell phone. If you’re taking a test and the teacher has his back turned for a moment you can take a picture of the test and send it to all your friends who haven’t taken it yet. You can use it to publicly shame your teacher like this kid did. And never mind all the porno that’s at their finger tips. The possibilities are endless and administrators need to start backing up teachers and suspending kids who get caught using cell phones in class.
