Today, my teacher confiscated my cell phone for text messaging. He said he would give it back if the next text that I would receive was important. I prayed the guy I've been texting didn't send the dick pic he said he was going to. He did. FML

ok first of all, in SOME schools, teachers have the right to confiscate 'disruptive objects' for a limited amount of time, like till the end of the class or the day, but they MUST give it back. ----------- BUT!!! they definety cannot open the phone and read the messages without the person's consent (or a search warrent) ------------- Also, for those of u saying that minors have no rights under the constitution, remeber the first line of it?? it says "WE THE PEOPLE", it doesnt say "WE THE ADULTS", also are you saying that teachers can just go up to a random kid and pull down thier pants?? because they have no right of privacy?? ------------ for those who say that teachers have right since school are government property, i ask u, isnt roads/streets/highways also gov't property?? ...so your saying that the moment i leave my house and step on the street, my rights are somehow "diminished"?? overall i find teachers have maken a wayy to big a fuss out off cellphones....STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS PEOPLE!!!

Teachers can do whatever they want with your phone.

When the teachers at my school take someones phone, they give it to the principal, and he will look at EVERY SINGLE text message you've sent/recieved. OP, why the crap were you sexting in class? And if you are under 18, they can legally arrest you for sexting, I believe

Mainly you're right. But if a parent consents, the child has no say. The same way if you rent your place, and your landlord consents to a search of the place, you have no say.

Teachers CAN NOT read the messgages. When you phone is taken, take the battery out! You have the right to and at your school for the one saying the principal reads all your texts, thats invasion of personal space and can be arrested or fined. We do still have rights in school, but extra laws to listen to as well. If the Supreme Court said kids have no rights in school, it would be mayhem. Pure mayhem. I wouldnt let my kids go to school and some teachers would be even meanier and stricter than now. If we have no rights, why are teachers not allowed to beat us? Teachers have been arrested for violating a students RIGHTS before, therefore, kids do have rights.

IMHO it would depend at the age of the guy. If he would not be a minor, why to arrest OP? For abusing a kid with sexting, nevertheless that OP herself was the kid? If that is the case - WTF is wrong with this law?

For everyone saying the school/teacher/etc has no right to look at the texts and that it's illegal, check the student-parent handbooks your school gives you at the beginning of the year. They almost always include a technology agreement where you wave your right to privacy on any technology you bring onto campus. The last four schools I've taught at had that in it, as did the high school I attended (right before cellphones became cheap and ubiquitous).

In order to attend school in my county, all students have to sign a contract saying that their cell phone/computer is the property of the school during school hours. We have no rights over it.

Stand up for your rights. Take the phone from him. Forcibly, if need be.

Someones a rebel.They were texting **inappropiately** during a class, and the teacher took up their phone, because about 9 out of 10 schools have a no phone policy.

#7 - Thing about that is, phones aren't illegal, and don't pose a physical risk to others. It's as asinine as confiscating lipstick or gum - it's a private thing and others really have no rights to take those from you. If she were smoking in class - if she's underage, it's a crime. If she isn't - it can pose a physical risk to others, especially in poorly-ventilated areas. Looking at a dick on a cellphone isn't a crime, but that's not the point. Teachers shouldn't be confiscating cellphones, because it is a private possession and is not illegal to own.

Um actually it is illegal to have pictures like that underaged. The person who sent the picture committed a crime. Ever heard of Child Pornography? Unless of course they're in college but I seriously doubt it.

When I was in 3rd grade my teacher confiscated my Chapstick and wouldn't even give it back when my lips were bleeding...I don't think teachers care if what they're doing is right.
