Xavier College’s past revealed following online bullying scandal

It sounds like the worst school on the worst corner of the worst suburb, and yet you pay about $25,000 a year to go there. Xavier College is a prestigious Catholic boys school in Kew in Melbourne with an esteemed alumni — Labor Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, AFL Brownlow medallist Jobe Watson, world champion marathon runner Robert de Castella and Formula One world championship winner Alan Jones. Even Barry Humphries’ character Sir Les Patterson claims he was a student. The school says it aims to produce “reflective, compassionate and articulate men” who will provide “outstanding service and leadership in our world”. But it is often plagued with scandal, and online bullying is the latest transgression to rock the senior boys campus. Its students this week came under fire for taunting public school students on Facebook ahead of the VCE English exam, calling them “povos”. One said he felt glad he went to a private school ­instead of a “poverty-stricken s–thole in Pakenham”. But Pakenham year 10 student Liam Bottriel was quick to put the elitist bullies of Xavier College in their place. “It says more about how they’ve been brought up, than anything. It’s really sad,” he said. Source: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/xavier-colleges-past-revealed-following-online-bullying-scandal/story-fnq2o7dd-1227588458896

Colleges Should Offer Courses in Cyber Security: Ankit Fadia

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The level of awareness in India about hacking is very low and more colleges need to offer courses in cyber security, Ankit Fadia, one of the brand ambassadors for prime minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Digital India’ programme, has said. Fadia, who calls himself an ethical hacker,  was in the city on Thursday to release his latest book series, ‘Stretch Your Technology’. Addressing the gathering, he said, “The awareness level in India about hacking is very low. Although there is a huge demand for cyber security professionals in the corporate world, very few colleges offer courses in hacking. The government should introduce courses in cyber security at least in government colleges. “The digital revolution has taken India by storm. It could lead to democratisation of power through the availability of information. However, very few people know how to unleash the full potential of their smartphones. My main goal with these three books is to change this scenario.

Bill To Enforce Student Privacy In Colleges

Members of Oregon’s congressional delegation released a draft a bill Thursday, aimed at protecting the privacy of students when they are involved in a legal dispute with a college.

Earlier this year, a student at the University of Oregon filed a lawsuit against the school for mishandling her rape case.

The school found three basketball players responsible and kicked them out. But nobody was ever found guilty of any crime.

What particularly upset people was that in preparing to defend itself, the university got the student’s health records from the university health clinic and sent them to its attorneys.

The U.S. Department of Education has since Read More

QB’S ROLE IN STEUBENVILLE RAPE HANGS OVER COLLEGE’S NEW TEAM

NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A small community college in Ohio is banking on its newly created football team to boost school spirit and enrollment. In turn, its starting quarterback — a former high school player convicted in a notorious rape case — is banking on this school that took him when others wouldn’t.

But though the team is rolling over opponents thanks in large part to its star quarterback, not everyone on campus is impressed. In tiny Nelsonville, criticism over the creation of the team and allowing Trent Mays to play on it has hung a shadow over the team’s early success.

AMARILLO, TEXAS — Sexual violence is a hot topic on college campuses. However, according to the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault, 82 percent of victims do no report this type of crime to law enforcement. Nearby West Texas A&M says they expect their averages to be below the national averages because of their student body size. However, when looking at data from recent years, the PD at WTAMU feels sexual violence crimes are under reported. Yet, technology could change this. A newly created app can now be accessed throughout campuses in the state of Texas, giving students resources at their fingertips. It’s called Texas Safety U. “We are technology driven society right now. That is probably the first step for anyone, especially the college age they are going to access those types of services and information by technology initially,” said Family Support Services, Angie Stovall. source: http://www.connectamarillo.com/news/story.aspx?id=1159194
