I’m not sure what it’s going to take before government & business entities stop trying to control what their employees and/or students are blogging about – some sort of realization that there’s not any way to control such a thing? And that doing so only makes you look like an idiot?
The new guidelines would apply to student and teacher postings on blogs and social networking sites such as myspace.com, said Jim White, the Johnson County district’s director of technology. As more students turn to the Internet to vent about their classmates, principals are facing new disciplinary challenges.
I can’t wait to see the first court challenge over this policy.
