State Senate OKs Cyber-bullying Bill
A proposal to crackdown on “cyber-bullying” has been approved by the state Senate. The Gongwer News Service says the measure would require that schools have policies on the issue. It follows incidents around the country in which students were harassed by other students on Facebook and other social media.
But some critics say the bill goes too far because it would require districts to control the behavior of students outside of school.
The bill, which would add cyber-bullying to an anti-bullying measure approved several years ago, now goes to the state House Education Committee.
