Missouri Facebook Ban Repealed

Missouri Repeals Law Banning Teacher-Student Facebook Friendship:

Remember back in July when the state of Missouri enacted legislation making Facebook friendship between teachers and students— as well as any sort of social networking — illegal?

After teachers complained the ban was unconstitutional and interfered with education, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon altered the state policy in a new bill signed Friday. The initial state senate bill, which has come to be known as the “Facebook Law,” is no longer in effect,reportsThe Kansas City Star.

Instead, all Missouri school districts will have until March 2012 to create their own social networking policies.
