In the article, “School Social Media Free Speech Case” I learned that people have different overviews on whether or not your school has control over the things that are posted on their students’ social media platforms. This discussion has opened parents’ eyes and made them take their child’s privacy more seriously as on the other hand, parents are agreeing with the method of letting schools take control of what their child posts on social media. The district placed a poll where parents voted whether or not the school administrators have power over their students’ social media posts. The votes came out to 50/50, keep in mind that only three people voted yes and three people voted no, regarding the amount of students that are in that school. It did not make much of an impact on the school’s regulations.
I personally agree with the fact that schools should not have power over their students’ social media platforms considering that it’s their social media as well as a folder of privacy. I take into consideration how long students are at school, I would not want to go home after being at school for 8 hours and still be worried about the school watching me. Therefore, I disagree with the method of letting the school have power over their students’ social media.
