Can student fights be blamed on technology?
That’s the question administrators at Progress High School and the School for Legal Studies in Williamsburg are asking as they struggle to crack down on student fights — many of which are ending up on YouTube. Instead of addressing any roots of the problem, they are addressing the means kids hype-up the fights and record them for viewing online.
A teacher at Legal Studies told the Daily News kids are using their cell phones to schedule the fights and later post them on the internet. Her solution to bring peace: “We need to enforce the rule prohibiting electric devices at our campus.”
