Should Teachers And Students Be Facebook Friends?
New Missouri law makes it illegal
News broke this week that a new law in Missouri makes it illegal for teachers to be Facebook friends with their students. According to a report in Mobiledia, the law is in an effort to "more clearly define teacher-student boundaries." The law does, according to the report, allow for teachers to have "Facebook fan pages" that allow for public interaction between instructors and their classes.
Do you think the law is a good idea? Do you think the law is necessary? Should New Jersey consider something similar?
