Student email

Should hs students have email accounts? YES! If we are to propose real world communication skills I believe it is imperative that we allow email accounts for hs students as well as other forms of electronic communication. This being said I believe we must also provide the necessary parameters of safety, etiquette, and decency standards. One option is to setup controlled student accounts that more than likely will not be accounts that follow the students after hs. Option two is to set up accounts such as hotmail, Gmail, yahoomail, etc. that would allow for continued use after hs.

Given that the majority of communicationrom colleges is now coming through email I think students probably need both. An email that teachers use to communicate with students and for projects, but they should also be trained on responsible and professional use of email outside the walled garden.
