It took some time to get the technology working properly for most school districts and some did not do so well.

The racist and illegal jailing of children in Tennessee, some as young as 6-years-old

It doesn’t get any more racist and heartless than this. Commissioners – one of whom worked in a post office, and none of whom have law degrees or experience – created “laws” in Rutherford County, Tenn., which resulted in the illegal arrest and jailing of juveniles for decades. Officials placed the juveniles in jail for not breaking up fights at school. Most of the kids were Black and as young as 6. In September, the county agreed to pay $11 million to settle a class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of the juveniles. According to local reports, the final amount the county will pay depends on the number of valid claims made. Those who qualify could receive nearly $5,000 for each incident of illegal detainment.
