Schoolkids 'Looking At Pornography'

Scottish children are looking at pornography on school computers.

A survey reckons nearly a third of pupils have looked at 'unsuitable' material; with close to a fifth being exposed to sexual content or bad language.

It found 29% of 11-16 year olds in Scotland have accessed violent, shocking or adult material on websites using school computers.

A further 18% had seen sexual content or bad language.

Nathan Marke, Chief Technology Officer at Daisy Group - who carried out the research - said:  "Schools are investing in technology to improve the learning experience, but in many cases they don't have the correct infrastructure and know-how to support it.

"We also discovered that tools of yesteryear, such as blackboards and chalk, are remarkably prominent, perhaps because they are still seen as a fool-proof and reliable alternative to their technical successors."
