For one I have no clue how it could possibly be monitored other than in a reactive manner. IE using this as a basis for punishment when something did go wrong, but not having the power to actually prevent it. The other is there are a ton of problems that could arise out of trying to legislate this in broad strokes. What if the student is related to the teacher or if the student is homeschooled, etc?

I'm also curious about the phrasing of the law snippet the article posted. Do you see a need to also block former students?

Oh, I wasn't trying to advocate legislation, just that it's a good policy for one to have simply not being 'friends' with their students. I don't personally 'friend' former students, either, but it's just a matter of preference, really. Though some of the seniors from my first year are 22 - 23 now... :-?

Teachers are suing the state for their rights to play Farmville with students.

MSTA argues the law infringes on educators’ first amendment rights of free speech, association, and religion. The group is asking the court to keep that section of law from being implemented until the constitutionality can be determined.

“Many of our members are concerned about the unintended consequences of this law, including their ability to monitor their own children’s online activities,” Gail McCray, MSTA Legal Counsel, said in a statement. “It’s vague and more importantly, we believe it violates the constitutional rights of educators.”

“Plaintiffs have used and are using non-work-related social networking sites as an important avenue for contact with students, both during emergencies and for everyday educational issues, such as when a student has difficulty with a classroom assignment or identifying bullying,” the lawsuit states. “Senate Bill 54 makes it unlawful for Plaintiffs who are also parents of a child in the school district to communicate with her student/child via a non-work-related social networking site if there could be exclusive access.”

The 51-year-old man was fined under article 215 of France’s civil code, which states married couples must agree to a “shared communal life”. A judge has now ruled that this law implies that “sexual relations must form part of a marriage”. The rare legal decision came after the wife filed for divorce two years ago, blaming the break-up on her husband’s lack of activity in the bedroom.

A judge in Nice, southern France, then granted the divorce and ruled the husband named only as Jean-Louis B. was solely responsible for the split. But the 47-year-old ex-wife then took him back to court demanding 10,000 euros in compensation for “lack of sex over 21 years of marriage”. The ex-husband claimed “tiredness and health problems” had prevented him from being more attentive between the sheets.

But a judge in the south of France’s highest court in Aix-en-Provence ruled: “A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent.
“By getting married, couples agree to sharing their life and this clearly implies they will have sex with each other.”

I blame Obama. ??

I dont even understand the connection :-o
Is this some new internet meme ala "Blame Bush" or "Blame Gore" ... cus the man and his defenders will constantly remind you he is blameless for everything.
Im thinking this new meme wont fly.
It would assume some responsibility for something, and he has taken none.
he is still voting "present".

Apparently she is set on something higher than Miss Universe. Its sounds like she is angling for future Mrs Trump.
Miss Universe officials have a message for Catalina Robayo, Colombia's entry into Monday's contest: Don't forget to wear underwear. Robayo, one of 89 beauties from around the world competing to win the Donald Trump-owned contest, has been reprimanded for making appearance in tiny skirts - with no panties. "Colombia had to be spoken to and told she needed to wear underpants as what she was doing was totally inappropriate. People have been pretty upset by it; there have been photos and media appearances where she has completely had her crotch out."
