Missouri teachers don't have to unfriend their students on Facebook just yet

Don't hit the unfriend button just yet, Missouri teachers.

Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem issued an injunction today blocking a law (or what it really was, "a staggering prohibition of free speech rights") that would have restricted communications between teachers and students on the Internet, according to KMBC. The law would have gone live on Sunday, but no dice until at least February, giving plenty of time for a hearing on whether the law should be scrapped altogether.

The law barred private conversations, e-mails, direct messages, etc., between teachers and students. Because we all know that every teacher got into the profession to bang their students. Duh.

Of course, that's not true, but we all know how certain Missouri lawmakers with an R behind their names love to preach staying out of people's private lives. They just don't like to practice it.
