School bans blogs

Pope John XXIII Regional High School has banned the use of blogs and sites like or freindster. In the school or at home.

The reasoning sound like they are doing for a good reason. A student was talking to some through her site and it ended up being an adult. The question is, is forcing the ban at the students home life stepping on there free speech rights.

Maybe what needs to be done is the school/parent's drill into the kids head that you don't want to meet people you talk online in real life because 9 time out of 10 they are creepy. Instead of not allowing them the right to express them selves and talk about things important to them like how life sucks or how much they wub 50cent...

wait a minute maybe this ban is not such a bad ideal.
