Technological bar to parental fears

29th December 2000 at 00:00
I READ the article on concerns about school web sites with scepticism (TES, December 15).

I wholeheartedly agree with not publicising names and addresses but, in the main, photos on school web sites do not have the definition for the cut-and-paste job suggested.

Children on school sites are rarely see at close quarters and therefore even if some perverts were trying to use such images, enlarging will produce unacceptable distortions.

Care certainly must be taken but adults may be over-reacting because of a lack of understanding the technology.
