National School Board Survey

A recent National School Boards Association survey reports that more than 25% of the educators polled report they are aware of false websites and/or pages being created for the purposes of exacting revenge on an educator.

Interestingly and disturbingly enough, this practice is fairly common, and teens often find it humorous to set up MySpace pages for a principal or teacher they are not particularly fond of. We have seen this with at least two local educators who had been targeted for this type of degradation. The MySpace pages contained their photos, address info, and even phone numbers. The fake profiles were mean and humiliating. Ironically, we stumbled upon one of the pages in the course of an investigation. The other was discovered because the kids were bragging about it at the local high school. For one of the victims, we found three separate prank pages.
