Good for regents for revisiting social-media policy

twitterGood for Kansas Board of Regents chairman Fred Logan for calling for the creation of a work group of representatives from each state university to review the regents’ new social-media policy. The policy, which gives the chief executive at each university the authority to suspend or fire any faculty or staff member who improperly uses social media, has been roundly criticized by campus faculty and administrators and by national education groups. It’s both too vague and too severe. Logan wants the work group to present any proposed changes to the policy by April. It would have been better and easier if the regents had formed this group before passing the misguided policy.
