      This reminds me of a story involving my daughter. There was a math teacher
      at her middle school who fortunately decided to retire. She really did not
      treat the students with respect, especially any of the more needy students.
      The school knew there were concerns. They had students complete
      questionnaires. They had people visit her class ‹ but according to my
      daughter, she always was nice whenever someone was watching her.

      So the students cooked up a scheme. They were going to use one student¹s
      video cell phone to capture images of this teacher doing what they did not
      like her doing. They never actually pulled this off. But it was interesting
      to me how 6th grade students understood the power of the technology to
      address such concerns.
