LEE COUNTY, Fla. - The Lee County School District said teachers should not be friends with students on social networking websites - like Facebook or MySpace.
The district said it is inappropriate for employees to communicate with current students on site like these, but this is not a policy - just guidelines to follow.
We wanted to know what you think... our viewers, so we took it to Facebook.
Traci Lyn said, "We have enough issues in the education system to deal with. This should not even be an issue."
From Walter, "I say it's better to be safe than sorry. I see nothing wrong with having a school or class page."
Lynn said, "It can be used as a way to communicate. It helps that the teacher is at a place where a student can ask a question of a teacher at any time."
Stephanie said, "I think it is good because with teachers being accused and/or actually sleeping with or making advances to students - they need to just steer clear of anything that can be taken as inappropriate."
The school district thinks these guidelines are the first of its kind in Florida.
