    Sure...why not? Especially if it promotes the school and the art.

    I see it as a double edged sword. Yes it may help promote the school, but what happens if the student has other goals than the school owner, and what happens if the student quits because they have become disgruntled.

    I guess it depends on what they are doing. We have had a few issues with students just posting on public forums.

    And what happens when he posts things that are incorrect due to a lack of understanding?

    Forums are not as bad because theyare a place to share opinions, but a website is an advertisement for the school.

    Yes, but there are no accents on the internet. And students can say very stupid things and not realize who they are talking to. They then put the dojo in a very bad light to say the least.

    I agree, I think we have all seen it before.

    Sure, but haven't students behavior always reflected on the school? Even before the Internet?

    Yes they have, but now a days instead of upsetting a few people with the wrong comment you now can up set hundreds or thouseand all around the world instead of those in your own back yard.

    Oh well...what can you do? You can't prevent them from making a website. I guess you could sue them for using your school name without permission if it's copyrighted. That would probably result in the loss of a student for sure though.

    I guess the easiest thing to do (if they didn't do it on thier own) is have them submit anything for your approval prior to posting it. That would be the respectful thing to do...I oughtta know. I and another student pay for and maintain the AKKO website. Without him asking, I have the school owner approve anything I do. But that's just me.

    Some one comes on and tells them they are wrong. Sometimes bad press is better than no press at all.
