I am sympathetic with the objectives of this group. Children are not in a position to decide for themselves whether their images appear online. And there's no doubt these images are abused. I have to ask, though, where these same objections were when children were exploited as actors, placed in advertisements and appeared in news reports (Kim Phuc Phan Thi comes to mind). This suggests to me that the problem isn't really the exploitation of children's images, but a way to shift responsibility from the AI companies manipulating and misusing them to the schools benignly sharing their images online.
