I was just being flippant to be honest. I just meant the 'we the taxpayers must pay for this song and dance that is education' sentiment forgets the benefits of living in an educated society. Plus, well-educated students who keep their IP's and make a living out of them will pay taxes that more than repay the costs of their education.

Turning schools into a business is a step away from this process because they will maximize their own profit rather than the quality of life in society. Of course corporations are not bad and I am in favour of free trade; but there is a difference in corporations giving goods in exchange for money and corporations benefiting from selling bad loans to naive students (or naive house-owners). Making money of the ignorance of others is vile and education is where students should learn as much as possible to have a proper life in a rich society instead of being fresh saplings, to be digested by corporate cows.

If the kid had started that blog and posted on it for a school research, then yes, they could, but if he does it at home for himself on his pc and his own time, then no.

Read it again. Work done FOR the school or on the school premises, no matter the time (yours or lesson/teaching time). Not EVERYTHING you do while enrolled in their courses.

On one hand they probably want to avoid potential IP claims over displaying students work, or use of teacher materials and curriculums after the teacher left, which is understandable, on the other they are probably going way too wide and generic with it.

My kid would not participate in the art program or would require the teachers and admin to sign a release that I (as the legal guardian) own the IP. Everyday day that passes in the screwed up school systems, I beg my wife to homeschool our kids.

Looks like the board just took it off the.agenda
