Should Social Networks Go to School?

The NYTimes blog, Gadgetwise discusses the newfangled thought that social networks should be in schools. Taken from a report out of San Francisco, Paul Boutin of Gadgetwise contends that social networks may not have a place in school because kids flock to social networks to get away from authority–not be friends with it. Though there may be a few students who friend their teachers in a Tracy Flick sort of way. What do you think? Should schools embrace and/or create their own social networks?
