Objectives and activities are based on Missouri Standards, G.L.E., C.L.E., and D.O.K.
Due to recent developments and availability of computers, cell phones, and internet sites such as FaceBook, the traditional concept of the school bully has changed. Now, individuals can attack others, their reputations, and even diminish their self-esteem from a distance. They are able to display this hurtful information, along with pictures and videos to literally thousands of individuals. The number of people impacted by cyberbullying grows each day, and the effect can be seen, both inside the school and within the home. Some of the questions being raised are, whose is responsible for dealing with this problem, what can schools and parent do to reduce the problem, and what, if any, legislation deals with the issue?
