CPS Re-Evaluates Social Media Position

After reading yesterday's post about Chicago Public Schools implementing new policies regarding how teachers can communicate with their students through the Internet, which many teachers in the district felt would hinder their ability to use Web 2.0 resources and constrain their instruction, a reader of this blog sent me this article. Apparently, after hearing teachers' complaints, the board has decided to re-evaluate and tweak the new policies, although details surrounding which policies might be changed and how are still under wraps.
