"Online Safety" proposed for US school curriculum

Source: vnunet.com

"The US National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) has called on state leaders to work with schools and colleges to ensure that cyber-security, online safety and ethics lessons are integrated into every classroom."

Personally, I'd like to see some teaching about the dangers of cybercrime, with particular reference to scams. University students are a popular target for money mule scams, given as how they usually have the appropriate time, facilities, and need for cash. Warn the kids before they leave school, since it may be too late soon after that.
