Does something like this really need to be mandated in just about every school in the country?
Schools receiving subsidies for Internet service will have to teach students about the perils of cyberbullying and the responsible use of social networking sites, the U.S. telecommunications regulator said on Friday.
Cyberbullying "happens when teens use the Internet, cell phones, or other devices to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person," and it's a problem for nearly half of all U.S. teens, according to the National Crime Prevention Council.
Half of all teens? Really? I'm skeptical, to say the least.
