that social media like Facebook and Twitter has made bullying easier and worst. She recommended that schools monitor cyber behavior by students.
Now a school district in California is doing just that. The
district adopted the program after a 15-year-old student committed suicide by jumping from the roof of a high school. The district hopes that the program will alert them for the need to intervene in the lives of troubled kids. They have hired a company to monitor the social networks for 14,000 students, 13 years old and older. Specially, they are looking for violence, drug use, bullying, truancy and suicide attempts.
When you consider the number of times people have posted pictures and comments of misconduct including rape, drug use and bomb plots, I think it is a good idea. It appears that the parents aren’t doing it in many cases. I am sure that the ACLU will get involved soon.
