Earlier this month, the State of Missouri passed a law making it illegal for a teacher to be friends with a student on Facebook or any social media site. They did this because they felt that social media could lead to inappropriate contact and many people agreed.
The Missouri State Teachers Association did not agree. They fought and won a temporary stay, saying the law is unconstitutional because it denies free speech. The judge who overturned the ruling gave the teacher’s union 180 days to test out the concept, at which time, presumably, a final decision will be made.
