Chalk Talk: Zero Tolerance for Bullying
The days of fighting in schoolyard may be behind us as more and more bullying takes place away from all together, in cyber-space. Social media has created an outlet for people to connect to one another but it has also become a place for bullying of other students. Cyber bullying like this often goes unnoticed by faculty and parents because there are no physical signs. The internet has created a forum where bullying can also occur. Schools across the country have recognized this development and are working with students and parents to create an awareness of the growing problem.
