If my children were involved I would definitely want to be notified, and then I would be upset that the police were even brought into the situation,
not to mention that the images were forwarded to the principal.

There's nothing wrong with it. It's a natural occurrence that begins at young ages. They shouldn't be restricting kids from something that they will
eventually be exposed to anyways. They shouldn't be wasting their resources on the restriction of sexting. Instead, they should be worrying about
drugs and violence. Sexting is not even harming anyone. It's a joke compared to the other problems. If I was their principal, I wouldn't care if kids
were sending nude pictures to each other. Natural tendencies shouldn't be prohibited.

I can agree to an extent. While I don't necessarily think its ok, I don't exactly think there's something wrong with it either. But, school is
definitely not the place for that. By your logic you might as well let them have sex in the hallways because they'll be having sex one day anyways.
I think a ban on cellphones would have prevented this, and I don't understand why, or if they don't have one. I know when I was in school we weren't
allowed to have pagers, or walkmans etc..(90's)
I agree sex is something kids need to learn about and understand, but sexting at school isn't exactly the lesson I want my children to have.
I also don't think sexting is hamless. Plenty of young people don't fully understand the consequences and repurcussions that could come from sending
someone naked pictures of yourself. Often the pictures are spread around and used as a way to humilate and ridicule someone.
