Student Caught Using Firefox gets Detention
And why not? Teenagers know more about the internet now that probably 90% of school faculty. To a teacher this most likely just looked like the kid was up to something wrong, so he handed out the detention slip. What's more interesting is how the administration attempted to change the story into a more plausible excuse for the punishment. This probably doesn't sound too familiar: Teachers over-reacting then trying to cover their tracks by shifting the blame. The school should thank him for using Firefox. It probably freed up some bandwidth that day so some math teacher could look up kiddie porn.
