education policy socially unacceptable

Socially unacceptable? The state of Missouri doesn't want teachers randomly "friending" students, Audrey Watters writes.

Weirdly enough, the way the new regs are written could be a boon for groups such as Edmodo that already have student-teacher safeguards built-in.
