Kelli Stopczynski reports on a case in Michigan where a teacher's aide refused to allow her employer to view her Facebook postings and was suspended. In this case, the district had been alerted by a parent to a photo that the aide had uploaded to her account. Lewis Cass ISD superintendent Robert Colby called her into his office. 'He asked me three times if he could view my Facebook and I repeatedly said I was not OK with that,' Hester told WSBT. In a letter to Hester from the Lewis Cass ISD Special Education Director, he wrote ''in the absence of you voluntarily granting Lewis Cass ISD administration access to you[r] Facebook page, we will assume the worst and act accordingly.' Hester keeps that letter in her stack of documents related to the case. She provided the letter to WSBT. Hester said Colby put her on paid administrative leave and eventually suspended her.
