UK: 7 In 10 Parents Want Compulsory Online Privacy Lessons

"Parents would like the government to introduce lessons to improve young people’s understanding of online privacy and the value of their personal reputation, with 69 per cent of parents calling for compulsory lessons to be introduced as part of compulsory school lessons, according the Digital Literacy Report 2009.

There is a growing concern among parents about their children’s online activities , according to the YouGov poll of 2,050 adults.

Almost half (48 per cent) said they were worried that their children’s online actions of social networking sites like Facebook , Bebo and YouTube will “destroy their future chances of getting into a chosen university or getting their first job” and more should be done by the government and schools to help young people safeguard their future prospects."

EDITORIAL COMMENT: LAZY DIPSHIT PARENTS SHOULD LEARN HOW TO USE A COMPUTER AND TEACH THEIR KIDS THEMSELVES

As above.

I've taught an awful lot of adult computer education courses and one the things that strikes me the most is how lazy adults are about learning how to use the 2 most profoundly affecting tools of our time: computers and the internet.
