A 12 year old girl from Minnewaska Area Middle School in Minnesota is in trouble for posts she made on her Facebook account. She was at home and used her personal computer but the posts are allegedly about a hall monitor and separate discussions about sex.
The school forced her to give up her password so that they could monitor her account. And it upset her.
Here is what the ACLU said:
“RS was intimidated, frightened, humiliated and sobbing while she was detained in the small school room,”
“RS was extremely nervous and being called out of class and being interrogated.”
Here is what the school district said:
“The district is confident that once all facts come to light, the district’s conduct will be found to be reasonable and appropriate.”
