A Northern California school district's attempt at stopping cyber-bullying is generating controversy.
The Lodi Unified School District is requiring high school students who participate in after-school programs such as sports or clubs to sign a social media contract.
The document says the school district can monitor students posts on social media and kick them off school teams and clubs if officials find the posts inappropriate, according to Fox 40.
According to the contract, if students post, tweet, or even “like” something on social media that is deemed inappropriate, they could be punished. The first time they'll receive a one-game suspension. After a second offense, they will be removed from the team or club
Some students said they didn't like the rules and said they violate their 1st Amendment rights.
