Judge Blocks Teacher Facebook Law


Should teachers and students be friends on Facebook and other social networking sites?  Is this a breeding ground for predators or an opportunity for students to have their questions answered and teachers to potentially recognize a struggling student?  And should it all be regulated under a state law?

All questions at the center of what is being called the ‘Facebook Law’ set to take effect in the state of Missouri yesterday, Sunday, August 28th.

The law sought to restrict Internet communication between students and teachers…but was blocked by Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem after some considerable fighting by Missouri teachers.

Why did he block it and where do you stand?

Take a listen….
