Undercover teachers to track gang members online
Undercover teachers to track gang members online | The Register
Teachers will be forced to become undercover homies as part of a government strategy to combat the rise of teenage gangs, the children’s minister will say today.
However, this won’t mean swapping their cords for do rags and baggy jeans, rather that they will have to scour social networking sites for evidence that their charges are in danger of being sucked into gangs and keep tabs on whether they acquire new trainers or phones.

I would say that teachers scouring social network sites puts them at risk of being exposed to some images that would be likely to jeopardise their career!
When are they supposed to do this? Bebo, Myspace, Facebook are all blocked by county at my school. I for one would certainly not be happy doing it at home.
