Do you think teachers should be facebook friends with their students or the parents of students?


I've noticed more and more comments on other people's facebook posts from teachers who work at my child's school. I'm not sure if I would be comfortable being facebook friends with my child's teacher or with my child being her teacher's facebook friend.

    Thanks. I agree with you but think that it will become more common as social media sites become more and more pervasive.

    You see headlines about facebook all the time these days. I think it's better for everyone to just not do it.

    The important thing here is if they know how to use all the settings...I don't know about that. I'm not even sure what all the settings are, but I like the idea of friending a parent first. Thanks.

    Interesting response with a both sides approach and really well thought out. Interesting approach of having a "school only" page. Thanks.

    Interesting thoughts and really interesting that you taught in a progressive school. I went to an alternative middle school back in the mid seventies and we called the teachers by their first names. It was not a good fit for me. Thanks.

    Thanks. I bet it's tough for people that are acquainted outside of school. There definitely has to be a line.

    I would definitely agree that it should not be a requirement. I also agree that a teacher would definitely want some space away from work. Thanks.
