Controversy has increased over a new social media policy in the Lodi, Calif., school district, with an attorney sending a letter to ask officials to suspend the policy, which requires student-athletes and those who participate in extracurricular activities to sign a social media contract. Under the contract, students agree not to engage in or support bullying behavior on social media. The letter was sent on behalf of the Student Press Law Center, which says the policy is too vague and suppresses free-speech rights.
