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.
Great points here and I have to agree with them. It seems to be the general consensus in the answers here.
Interesting response with a both sides approach and really well thought out. Interesting approach of having a "school only" page. Thanks.
Thanks. I can understand your feelings.
As a teacher who has home schooled one of my children and had my other children go through public school i can say that public school is not for every student and neither is home school.
Yay Iburmaster! Never, ever, ever, ever would my kids go to school outside the home. I wish there had been an option when my children were growing up.
Very good points. Thanks.
Wow - This is an awesome answer and I have to agree with you.
Good point about the photos or comments. There is so much in the news about that these days. Thanks.
Well said. There are all kinds of stories in the news these days about facebook.
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.
I understand your feelings. There's a fine line & unmonitored it can become chaos. I don't think having a friendship with students & parents is a good idea. It's only used as another line of communication about assignments, projects or conc
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.
Interesting from the students point of view. Thanks.
