The interviewer quoted me accurately (as all but one interviewer I have ever had has been able to do). A passage from the article is printed below:
(Leanna)Johnson (a Farmington technology teacher) said that she just "got all the local schools on board for a reading blog." The project won't be illegal under the new law, but Johnson does worry that the law will have a chilling effect when it comes to dealing with administration.
As for her relationships with former students, Johnson is already beginning to say goodbye. "I will soon be de-friending former students that have moved on to high school," Johnson told her Facebook friends and Google+ circles yesterday. "Please don't take it personally."
Turner also says that in some instances the lost relationships Johnson is mourning may be the most important piece at stake.
"Without responsible adults for the students to confide in," Turner said, "this misguided section of the bill may actually allow something bad to happen to a student because the student cannot legally confide in a trusted adult through the medium he or she uses on a regular basis."
Governor Nixon and state Sen. Jane Cunningham, the bill's sponsor, did not respond to interview requests for this story.
