Pa. AG faults 'breakdown' in cyber safety program

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Pennsylvania attorney general's office says "a breakdown in communications" caused problems with a cyber safety program in a suburban Philadelphia school that raised objections from school staff.

The office issued a statement taking responsibility for the matter on Thursday, a day after the event at Merion Elementary School caused the principal to write parents with her concerns.

The AG's office says it worked with the district over the summer to ensure the presentation met their needs, but the employee involved later left the agency.

Principal Anne Heffron told parents that some topics weren't appropriate for the 9- and 10-year-old students. Among them were that it's not OK for anyone to take pictures of naked children, and "homework" that directed them to the Megan's Law section of the agency's website.
