INTERVIEW: Teacher/student social media bill advances in Lansing
5:54 PM, Jul 2, 2015
(WXYZ) - With the growing number of inappropriate relationships between educators and students being reported, a 7 Action News investigation recently set out to find out what policies school districts have in place regarding social media interaction between staff and students.
We found that nearly half of all local schools didn’t have a policy in place.
Our investigation led to a promise of change from Lansing.
State Representative Adam Zemke has been leading the charge following our investigation and has drafted a bill regarding schools and social media policies.
Representative Zemke joined us on The Now Detroit to update the situation.
