Missouri Bans Student/Teacher Friending Online

This coming August 28th, a new law goes into effect in Missouri prohibiting teachers from having any social contact with students via social networking sites such as Facebook, etc. The law enforces policies that have been in place for some time.

Senate Bill 54 is designed to protect children from sexual misconduct by teachers, compelling school districts to adopt written policies between teachers and students on electronic media, social networking and other forms of communication.
