Should students be friends with teachers on social networks?

  • Yes because they can talk about homework

    If a student needed help on a question then the student can get help from the teacher for more the student can tell the teacher what they did in private and not get embarrassed by the teacher. The teacher can also help cheek the answer for missed questions and missed spell words.

  • Students should be friends with teachers

    Students should be able to follow teachers because if you need help on something you could just message your teacher and he/she could help you out with whatever it is and teachers shouldn't be posting anything inappropriate because when they are getting a job they could see what they have posted.

  • Yes, students should be friends with teachers on social networks

    Because if you're friends with them then they won't be as hard on you in class. I wouldn't want my teacher being mean to me about stuff. I can just message him/her on facebook and work some things out and be friends. Then there will be no getting picked on in class:)

  • It is not a good idea,

    For the simple reason that the teachers are mentors and not the friend of their student, I mean like your not gonna go and ask your teacher: "Oh yeah we should hang out this week-end!". Right ?! It totally doesn't make sense! On top of that the teacher as the student have a private life outside of school and the teacher or student doesn't have to know it. I find this idea extremely weird and usually the teacher is at least 15 years older than the student so... I a bit like being friend with your parents friends ! If YOU have any relationship with your teacher/ student I hope you could end it as quick as possible, after all we don't live in Pretty Little Liars !

  • No way man!

    They shouldn't be friends on social media because they can start bulling and they can tell teachers something that parents could be doing to them. Or the teachers could be giving students extra homework, teachers could be telling things to children, that parents don't want their children to know at all.

  • People are shy

    People do not have to get in other peoples stuff they are going to talk about that to their dad the student don't have to have a phone if they are going to act like that because their parents are not cool some people say that everyday ok so backoff

  • Teachers need Privacy

    I think students and teachers should NOT be friends on Social Medias because they have personal things to look over as well. No one wants a student seeing where their teacher went on this day and what they are going to wear at this party. Or who they are hanging out with. It wouldn't be very comforting especially seeing your teacher is dating someone and posts it on the Social Media.

  • No, students should not be friends with teachers on social networks.

    I believe that students should not be friends with teachers on social networks. There needs to be a boundary between teachers and students, and being friends crosses that boundary. Teachers do not need to know what goes on in a student's private life just like students don't need to know what goes on in their teachers' private lives.

  • Students should not be friends with teachers on social networks.

    Students should not be friends with teachers on social networks because it blurs the lines of their social roles. Students and teachers can be friendly with each other, but they should not socialize with each other as peers. Teachers have a responsibility not to remain professional with their students, both inside and outside the classroom.

  • Current students, no.

    There is no reason that former students can't be friends on social networks with their teachers, but there is no reason that a current student should. It creates an inappropriate line between the student and teacher dynamic. Teachers are not your friends, they are your instructors. Once they are grown though, it is okay.

  • Students should not be friends with teachers on social networks.

    Students should not be friends with teachers on social networks. This would only end badly from my standpoint and I think that the student/teacher relationship should be kept to a classroom setting. I believe rumors would spread throughout the social network and the relationship would fall apart after awhile but it should be up to the teacher to decide.

  • No, unless it's a special site only for students.

    Students should not be knowing what their adult teachers do or where they are in their personal time away from school. Adults do things youngsters can not comprehend and should not be doing themselves. Unless it is a site dedicated to student help, a teacher should not friend his or her students.

  • Simply due to how much drama is created on social networks, it would be wise to not friend teachers.

    People tend to take things out of proper perspective, which at times have caused unecessary backlash. If a teacher friends its students on facebook, people may thing something inappropriate is going on with their child and a specific teacher. From a professional standpoint, it shows that a teacher has specific favorites in his/her classroom(s).
