Ask any teenager and they'd probably say that they don't send messages to their teachers on social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook or via text messages ... it's just not cool! In Lamar County, Mississippi, there was a fear that students would try to socially connect to their teachers.
Earlier this month, the Lamar County school board prohibited this contact over initial concerns that it's unprofessional. The policy is designed to prevent students and teachers from sharing personal information over the web and through text messages. Students and teachers are still allowed to create profiles.
There is no word on what the penalty is for violating the policy. So far, there have been no penalities.
Umm, they forgot to make it illegal to purchase Valentines for your teacher, to send your teacher roses, love notes on little scraps of paper, or to hire sky-writing planes to say, Miss x, I'd really like to f**k your brains out, love little Johnny from third period.
