Has anyone noticed that there are still teachers with students as their "friends" on Facebook? Marion had a memo sent out to all employees before he left telling them not to be doing this, and then Carter did the same thing when he took over as superintendent. Some people followed orders, but some apparently didn't care or knew nothing would be done to them. And most of them are teachers/coaches at the high school!

Welll Wellll I think this was done because some of the Parents were complaining and theatning because certain males kept trying to contact their daughters after being told not to. Lee county school system has and does have a lot of them.

Talk about inappropriate relationships, Lee High is Lee County's Sex Education school. The principal encourages the teacher to befriend their students on the social networks. This is fact!

Facebook is not the problem. The probem is the state, county and school board doesn't do anything
about inappropriate relationships. If anything, they might send them to another state so they can still work around students.

Yes, they may have sent out a memo.....but they CAN NOT MAKE teachers remove students as friends...by law. ANd the letter, ONLY RECOMMENDED....didn't say they HAD to or else!!!

I know the true story behind this!!

Here goes:

A teacher reported inappropriate content on a popular student's Facebook. Instead of dealing with what the student was doing that was inappropriate (drinking underage), the question became, Why was the teacher on that student's Facebook page to begin with?

Let's just avoid the problem all together by changing the focus from the student misbahaving to the teacher who was "eavesdropping."

Don't get me wrong, I agree teachers should not be friends with their students on Facebook. All it does is put teachers at risk for accusations of inappropriate relationships. There's a conspiracy theory that apparently practically every male teacher in Lee County is a pedophile, and half the women teachers are too.

But as far as why the administration stepped in with their two cents, that's why.

This is also true. Maybe they School system just ignored these parents complaints. They seem to always look the other way when it involves abuse of any kind.

Well if you parents let your daughters out the front or back door with decent clothing on then maybe the teachers and other males that see them would not be tempted! I have seen young girls in all kinds of "clothing" that I would not let a dog out of my house in. If you dangle a piece of meat in front of a tiger don't expect him to always walk away. Don't want you daughter in danger then don't let them dress that way!

True, but Yeary was not the only one. He just happened to get caught with his hands in the cookie jar. The one's that got away did it years before and after he came along.

And.....some of the teachers ended up even marrying their students...

I think kids shouldnt even be allowed on facebook, parents shouldnt let thier underaged kids even have a fb for the simple facts of rapists, child molesters and kidnappers of course are all over the W.W.Web. The rules should be only 18 years and older allowed on fb & topix. This is just my opinion on this subject that Im entitled to just like everyone else is entitled to theirs.

Thank you I think the internet is just not suitable for children. I commend you for putting yours on lockdown so i have to say it again I commend you great parenting. when mines old enuff to be on it I will be doing the same along with blocking most satellite channels even some commercials anymore arent suitable for children seems like everythings just in one way or another teaching nothing but sex to our young children. Its a dangerous world for our babies to live in along with so much filth.

Block Cartoon Network after 8 or 9, it has adult swim and they show and talk horrible! Family Guy and a few others changed their ratings to try and get by parental blocks (which I still have on the tv) and instead of saying tv 14 sdv which is sex dialog and violence, it now just says tv 14 so it essentially lets sex go. They showed strippers, talked about incest, it was pure filth and I was so angry that they changed the rating and I thought it was being blocked. You have to now screen each and every show for your children. It's sad that cartoon network has lowered itself to this. THey show nudity on cartoons and show couples having sex on cartoons, it's outrageous! When you click to block NO RATING cartoons it will block out the silliest cartoons like preschool stuff.

Hey when does it come out or is it a past issue? I love looking at those young girls. Most of the time it is in the bathroom or when I am in my bed. Hey for a 57 year old man they really make my day! Which one is your daughter? I would like to add her as a friend on my facebook page. I have several young girls on my page now. Maybe we could meet for a nice diner and night cap? Please please let me know which one she is.

I don't even attend a church, sorry but you're attempts to call me a holly roller is simply a laughable insult that has no bearing on my life. I'd like to know how your 19 year old daughter posing for a men's magazine has to do with blocking a channel from a child who should not watch something they are too young to understand? Sounds like you had your hand in some horrible parenting yourself there and like to judge others. Proud that your daughter showed a country her pikachu-you should win parent of the year. Please do tell how her pictures look since you seem to enjoy them so.

She's probably one of the ladies working at the Mouse's Ear. If her parents like seeing her nude then she's most likely got daddy issues and she'll love you.
