Although we shouldn’t be on social media websites at school anyway, it will come as news to some that CPS has disabled the popular website Instagram from their computers and wireless connections. CPS has taken this action due to the fact that students post pictures of teachers, staff, and fellow students “lacking.” Some have even been taking pictures of tests, classroom assignments, and/or homework assignments.

Rachel Hampton, senior at Morgan Park High School, states her opposition towards CPS’ decision. “I don’t like the fact that CPS disabled Instagram because it’s not like we’re posting statuses, it’s just pictures.”

Darvia Okoroigwe, also a senior at Morgan Park, shockingly agreed to CPS’ decision. “Actually, I’m surprised it took them this long to disable it. Instagram really distracts you whether you want to believe it or not. It’s like the candy of this age. They disabled Facebook and Twitter a long time ago and now they’re disabling Instagram. So we shouldn’t really be mad. We should have expected it. I know I did.”

This is not the first time CPS has disabled a popular social media website from the schools. Websites such as MySpace, YouTube and other popular websites have also been disabled. Students should just accept this loss and continue to accept more losses due to their own actions. We have no one to blame but ourselves.
