Florida School Changes Rule

I had to laugh out loud when I saw this one.
The Duval County School board will consider banning students from taking pictures and videos while on campus.

The proposed change in the student code of conduct comes after a video allegedly showing a teacher choking a student was turned in to administrators.

The school district says teacher Michael Brown has been removed from the classroom at Forrest High, but it's still investigating the charge.

If the district approves the change tonight, students will not be able to take those videos or photographs without the permission from school administrators and the people in the photos.

The changes would start this fall. School Board Considers Ban on Pics, Video on Campus

Yeah, they have a problem down there. Kids taking pictures.

So no more of those candid shots for school yearbooks? Typically, those are published with permissions received after the pictures have been taken.

If a student had taken a video of another student choking a teacher, would the administration be talking about a ban?
