High School Students Punished for Facebook Accounts

| |

There was much commotion and confusion in the halls of Beis Rivkah High School today, as the school administration cracked down on the possession of Facebook accounts by students.

Every girl in the 11th grade who possessed a Facebook account – about half the girls in each class – was individually removed from class and given a slip of paper with an ultimatum: delete the account entirely and pay a $100 fine, or face expulsion from the school.

A number of students and parents are especially upset about the move, claiming that the students had been encouraged by the school administration to create Facebook accounts the previous year, in order to vote for Beis Rivka in the Kohl’s charity giveaway. The school administration, however, says that they only encouraged the parents of students to create accounts for the vote – a fact that is disputed by the students.
