Hacker High School – A security debate

There was a college that was doing a course in regards to hacking and virus writing. This course had everyone up in arms. The debate centered on if this was a subject that was beneficial to teach. Would such a course lead to better trained security professionals etc. Well it seems we are now going to have a hacker high school as well.

The Hacker High School project is the development of license-free, security and privacy awareness teaching materials and back-end support for teachers of elementary, junior high, and high school students.
