Cage Matches and Cloud Computing

It's Random Friday at TeachHUB today. As far as I know, these two things have very little to do with one another, except they're both happening in schools... and I heard about them today.

First off, cage matches... as an accepted form of student-to-student disputes. Dallas ISD has records of an administrators
The principal and other staff members at South Oak Cliff High School were supposed to be breaking up fights. Instead, they sent troubled students into a steel utility cage in an athletic locker room to battle it out with bare fists and no head protection, records show....

Internal district reports obtained by The News describe a culture of sanctioned violence in which school employees and even the principal relied on "the cage" to settle disputes and bring unruly students under control. Full article
Did Michael Vick start running Dallas discipline programs?
Nope, it was Donald Moten. He was principal during the 2-year span when these fights reportedly took place. He denies that anything of this nature was tolerated under his tenure.
Either way, Ridiculous!

In unrelated but useful news, eSchoolNews has a super-helpful article on cloud computing that will save me from being a total ed tech poser. They also referenced this helpful and entertaining video that has tech experts explain this elusive and ever-changing concept.

These are just two ridiculously random things I learned on this first day of spring 2009. What have you learned today?
