CHICAGO — The first Chromebook wasn’t working, so Valerie Carroll went back to the school and got a new one. The replacement worked, but the first week of remote learning, her daughter’s class at Chicago’s Nicholson Elementary was derailed by images of pornography and guns.
“The kids were in the class and all of a sudden you see porn, you see things that they shouldn’t see,” Carroll said. “They learned about porn, guns, and threats, when they should have been learning about science, math, literacy.”
From what Carroll has gathered, someone with access to the Google Meets link was able to get into the virtual classroom and take over the screen. Similar incidents have been reported at other schools this fall in
