How can we combat cyber bullying?

Published: 15 Dec 2007 09:30

Can a government campaign to tackle bullies who use the net and mobile phones to target students and teachers work? Teachers, pupils and parents will be given new guidance to help tackle cyber bullying as part of a government crackdown. Schools will receive advice on how to adapt anti-bullying policies to cover cyber bullying and how to have offensive material removed from websites. The initiative will be supported by peer mentoring schemes in which older students will be asked to help teachers tackle the problem.
