• Poll: Would You Allow Your Child To “Friend” Their Teacher On Facebook

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    At least three New York City area teachers have been fired in the last six months for “inappropriate” conduct with students on Facebook, including one who left the comment “This is sexy” on some of the students’ photos. And, in at least one case, a sexual relationship occurred, according to the New York Post.

    While this sort of behavior is the exception rather than the norm, these days it is quite common for teachers and students to e-mail and instant message each other. Sometimes they exchange cell phone numbers, and some educators socialize with pupils on the weekends.

    How much contact do you think students and teachers should have outside of the classroom?
