What do you think?
I'm glad it's not legal! It just seems really creepy to me. I'd not let my child friend his teacher -- he doesn't need to be their friend, he is their student and doesn't need to see all the stuff the teacher does outside of school. I would go even further that I bet some teachers would use information about the student, from his fb, against him. I know a teacher of my son a while back saw him get sassy with me in public once, outside of school, and she brought it up at school and disciplined him for it. (We handled that in about two seconds.) Too much potential for abuse with this.
I saw on our local news tonight that they have actually passed a law about this in Missouri.
