Missouri Teachers Sue to Block Social Media Law

A new law going into effect in Missouri the first of next year is being challenged by a group of teachers on grounds that the law violates their first amendment rights. The new law prohibits teachers from communicating privately with students over the internet.

That language on social media contact is just one part of a larger bill intended to discourage private relationships between teachers and students that have sometimes led to sexual abuse.
