Thoughts on "Teaching the Facebook Generation"
I think that its a good thing that students and teachers are banned from being friends on facebook for obviously the same reasons of restraining off school hours student and teacher realationships. However, I don't believe social networking sites should be blocked. They should be allowed because students are going to find a way around the blocks in the school system anyways. Plus students can use thier phones anyways to access facebook so it won't matter anyways. Plus you can use facebook or other sites for school purposes too. It makes sense to block such sites for elementary school and middle school but high schoolers should be allowed to access these sites.
