As reported via SunStar.ph, with the article titled Girl’s Facebook pics provoke case, a high school student is challenging her school's decision to bar her from attending graduation. According to the article, the violation that led to the decision included such abominable, my word, activities on Facebook, such as posting photos that "It referred to pictures of the student wearing a two-piece swimsuit while holding a lighted cigarette."
Facebook does offer a freedom of expression that influences hiring decisions and can agitate schools, especially when threats are transmitted. In my opinion, schools should embrace Facebook as a legitimate part of the Digital Age and their curricula. Afterall, it was founded for use at a school, was it not?
Why are some elementary students receiving text messages with their homework assignments, which costs money in terms of 'load' when an integration of Facebook would prove a better solution.
As for the Purity of photos and image keeping, does anyone really abide by good taste in public life, media reporting and television shows, to name a few, anymore? With semi-nudity and nudity all around us, why should Facebook be used as a punishment tool?
Please read the article for the facts and merits of the case that is making the headlines for tame reasons, yet helping to set precedents and moving money into flow ;)
