Can I follow my teacher on insta?Watch
Me and my teacher are like friends and student/teacher. Is it okay to follow him on insta or nah?
It's not illegal as such, but would be seen as a breach of the professional standards teachers are supposed to hold themselves to, and likely your school's social media policy. It might sound petty to you, but this could cause him to lose his job, or even not be allowed to teach anywhere- the rules for teachers are pretty strict.
It’s really concerning that you describe your teacher as being like a friend. He is not your friend. Either you are misinterpreting the relationship or he is failing to maintain clear professional boundaries. The former can be forgiven, the latter is extremely dangerous.
The policy at my school (which has a sixth form) is that we are not allowed to make contact with students via social media until 5 years after they have left the school.
