Delete Facebook Profile & Pay $100 Fine or Face Expulsion

Orthodox School Gives Students Ultimatum

Students at the Orthodox Beth Rivkah High School in Brooklyn, New York, have reportedly been given an ultimatum: Delete individual Facebook profiles and pay a $100 fine or face expulsion. Considering the negative elements that hold the potential to come as a result of using the social network, the school has apparently decided that the risks outweigh the benefits.

Now, the all-girls school is doubling down on its stance against Facebook and its potential evils.
