FCC: Schools Must Educate Students on Dangers of Cyberbullying
Cyberbullying has become an increasingly hot topic in recent months, and its potentially horrific consequences have become more painfully apparent. As you'll recall, Rutgers student Tyler Clementi committed suicide last month after his roommate streamed a video that showed the 18-year old having sex. The tragedy seems to have opened up an entirely new national dialogue on cyberbullying, and the FCC clearly considers it to be of the utmost importance. Education and awareness courses probably won't completely quell the inherently adolescent impulse to bully, but it's definitely reassuring to know that schools are doing their part to help students safely navigate the digital jungle.
