Girls Bugged Teachers' Staff Room

samzenpus posted more than 3 years ago | from the making-the-grade dept.

Crime 227

A pair of enterprising Swedish schoolgirls ended up in court after they were caught bugging their teachers break room. The duo hoped they would hear discussions about upcoming tests and school work, allowing them to get better grades. It worked until one of them decided to brag about it on Facebook, and the authorities were called in. The girls were charged with trespassing and fined 2,000 kronor ($270) each in Stockholm District Court.

Typically, I thought it was teachers bugging the Swedish "schoolgrils'" lock rooms or something. At least, that's what all those "feminist sexual exploration" films made it seem like...

Yeah. And many Hollywood teen films show coed shower rooms, but I've yet to find any colleges that offer said feature. Closest I ever came was at Penn State with a mixed boys/girl hall, but we had separate showers. :-| Jeez. How is a young nerd supposed to learn what boobies look like? Maybe the teen films are not entirely accurate?

Re:Reversed Rolls (0)

You went to the wrong school. My dorm had coed bathrooms. There were multiple shower stalls and, depending on the actual dorm, each shower stall had a door, like the ones you find in public restrooms, or each shower had a shower curtain. The facilities were in use by both sexes at the same time. Anyone could peek over or under the doors or even just pull open the shower curtain if they wanted to.

So you're supposed to get dressed and undressed inside the stall? Where do you hang the clothes without them getting wet? In every dorm I've ever visited you get naked in view of every one, hang or lay the clothes in a dry spot, and THEN enter the stall. Is that what you did in your coed dorm? Hmmmm. Your story sounds mysterious.

Creative Cheating (2, Insightful)

The method was clever, and the girls are smart enough to use bugging technology, but stupid enough to not actually apply their knowledge and learn something. I hope the court system teaches them a lesson that they won't forget, because a slap on the wrist (tiny fine) just isn't going to cut it.

You might not understand the Swedish concept of "dagsböter." Lidingö is a high-class neighbourhood, and dagsböter fines are judged from a person's daily income (or in this case, their parents.). Also, you fail at understanding exchange rates - 270 USD is 2000 SEK, means 2000SEK is worth the equivalent of 270$. So the fine is, indeed, 270$.

Also, note that it was "dagsböter", a Swedish form of fine based on a person's daily income. This was Lidingö, so presumably they (their parents) had some money to spare - a normal person would probably have gotten an order of magnitude smaller fine.

That is generally the way of cheating. Unless you put a good amount of effort into cheating, in most cases, the faculty or graders will notice. They don't always do anything (it's always a hassle and administrations are often hostile to cheating cases), but they notice a lot more than students may think.

You can, of course, put a lot of effort into it and do a good job of cheating, but then... why not study?

tverbeek (457094) | more than 3 years ago | (#33358588)

What did they think.... that the teachers would sit around discussing what questions they would include on the test, and maybe state the answers aloud? I've never hung out in a teacher's staff room, but I would imagine that if they talk about school matters at all (rather than who they liked on Swedish Idol last night, or whatever), they're complaining to each other about lousy students, bad working conditions, etc. These girls deserve to be left back because of how naive their plan was in the first place.

Re:discussions about upcoming tests (1)

eleuthero (812560) | more than 3 years ago | (#33357448)

I don't know about your teacher breakroom, but as an actual teacher, the conversation is quite similar to what you'd find in a normal breakroom - which movies / tv shows are of current interest, stuff going on at church/volunteer organization x, crazy situation that happened over the weekend with family, and difficulties with a particular aspect of work.

This last usually revolves around a student, whose last name is never mentioned to maintain privacy (and usually not the full first name either), and request for advice on how to deal with a behavior / academic problem.

Tests are never discussed in detail with the possible exception of English essays, so I'm not sure what the girls hoped to accomplish. Even with English essays, specific questions might get passed around a table and comments made along the lines of... "needs to be a bit more analytical material on this one" or "you might consider asking about x as it relates to 'that'" where "that" is never specified. Could some information be gleaned? Sure. But would it be worth bothering to bug the teacher's lounge? No.

Why is it that so many people don't seem to understand the concept of "Things You Don't Discuss In Public" anymore? Do they not think that the world wide web is public? The whole point of Facebook was supposed to be getting in touch with people and communicating with them, yet the way many people carry on, it's like they don't realize the whole world is able to look and see a permanent record of what they're doing.

The worst part is, this isn't even the stupidest braging I've ever seen done on facebook - one example I've seen was where one idiot was using lawsuits as a harrassment tool against someone they'd had a falling out with, and was constantly bragging on facebook about their next wonderful plan, and how "That idiot will never see this coming! There's no way they'll be ready for it!". Sadly, they had forgotten to un-friend the person they were suing, so their target received a steady stream of updates on what to expect next.

Are you claiming the FBI is in cahoots with the Lower Marion School District?

Maybe the FBI doesn't want the courts to rule on any spying charges that might effect their own efforts. It'd be a little embarrassing for them to have the defense attorney's bring up questionable cases of the FBI spying on citizens. Worst case scenario for them would be to have a ruling that was general enough to force them to stop some of their own activities. Much easier to say, they didn't mean any harm, we're just gonna let them go.

Also, that report you linked was funded by the Board of School Directors and is hardly "independent", even though it claims to be.

Re:Maybe the case will be dropped? (1)

spun (1352) | more than 3 years ago | (#33358560)

How could it affect their own efforts? They are the freaking FBI, not the Lower Marion School district. It's their job to spy, when given authorization. Prosecuting the LMSB could not in any way affect their ability to spy themselves. You really think the FBI is cool with just any old government employee spying? That's the FBI's turf!

Read the independent investigation. There was not enough evidence of wrongdoing to prosecute. The school district got consent from the parents when they lent out the computers.

>>>The FBI investigated the case and found there was not enough evidence to convict anyone of criminal charges.

The FBI also investigated the Black Panthers that were standing in front of voting polls, and intimidating white voters, and found not enough evidence to convict anyone even though there's TONS of evidence (video, eyewitness testimony). So I think it's understandable why I don't trust the FBI's judgement on this or any other matters.
.

>>>Are you claiming the FBI is in cahoots with...

Strawman argument. I never said anything of the kind. HOWEVER there was a camera placed inside bedrooms that could spy on (and was used to photograph) Pennsylvanian children. That alone is reason enough to prosecute. It's an illegal search by a government authority without Judge-issued warrant.

Bush dropped the black panther case (1)

spun (1352) | more than 3 years ago | (#33358474)

HAhaha, the black panthers? Intimidating white voters? Was anyone scared away? No. Two big black guys standing outside a polling place may scare the piss out of you but that doesn't make what they were doing illegal.

Besides, it was the Bush DOJ [ajc.com] that dropped the case. Oopsie! That kinda blows your argument out of the water, now doesn't it, winger?

If you read the independent investigation I'd linked to, you would understand why your characterization of the case is ludicrous. Of course what was done was morally wrong, and the school district will likely lose the civil case, but they did not actually break the law because they obtained consent when they loaned the computers. Oh, shucks, your argument is once again shown to be full of holes. Better luck next time.

Such things do not happen here in Sweden, because we have a functioning public high-school system. The US does not, from my understanding it's more like a part-time juvenile detention facility where you can choose to study if you feel like it. Also, the colder cultural climate (often mistaken as "chronic suicidal depression on a country-wide scale") might be a contributor to not running into hot-headed schemes.

fermion (181285) | more than 3 years ago | (#33358010)

It is the expectations of kids versus the expectations of adults. Kids, being still developing adult humans, have a hard time seeing beyond themselves. They want to do what they want to do and don't expect consequences. Like when that 19 year old drove off the bridge today. He was probably going too fast and maybe could not take the curve. We cannot sue the engineer because the kid did not expect consequences. Suing a school or an engineer is not going to change behavior.

The expectation of any teacher in the school environment is lack of privacy. Someone could always be listening, so the issue is not that the girls were bugging the teachers lounge. The issue is that in the real world such an action can get you in real trouble, loss of job, loss of license, etc, so if we are to encourage proper behavior, then consequences need to exist. Not because of harm done, but to encourage children to move away from actions that could be fatal or near fatal alter on.

So Facebook has become a Scooby Doo villain? How many stories have we seen recently that go "Plan X worked perfectly until someone bragged about it / posted pics on Facebook."?

No, Facebook is becoming the Scooby gang. "And I would've gotten away with it too if it wasn't for me posting the details of my plan on that meddling Facebook!"

Nah people are still the villains. FB just makes my job easier in catching them, since they give me all the evidence.

They might have had a future in politics.

As it stands now, they will have to settle for a job teaching.

It's a good thing there wasn't any music being played in the break room, or the local branch of the RIAA would have had them crucified.

Some of you may recall the story about school administrators using laptop cameras to spy on its students ( link to article [csmonitor.com] ). In that case, no charges were could be brought against the school administrators. How is it that students doing the same to their administrators are treated as criminals, then? This world is so confusing.

The answer to your question is this really strange and I know, hard to understand, concept of.... Ready... Different countries sometimes don't have all their laws written exactly the same.... I know it's crazy huh? Never would have thought of it.

I think the bugged conversation would be more like: "Dude Agda is the hot one." "No way, Ulva is way hotter. Did you see the knee socks? Thats hot." "Whatever, I'd totally do both of them."

A student comes to a young professor's office hours. She glances down the hall, closes his door, and kneels pleadingly. "I would do anything to pass this exam."

She leans closer to him, flips back her hair, gazes meaningfully into his eyes. "I mean," she whispers, "I would do anything."

He returns her gaze. "Anything?"

"Anything."

His voice turns to a whisper. "Would you... STUDY??"

Who is suggesting that it's okay for teachers to bug students?

Such silly girls ... we teachers never talk about the content of our upcoming tests when we're in the break room. We talk about problem students and sometimes their parents, too!
