apolitical Article – Schools are enlisting students to stop cyberbullying – While adults struggle to stay on top of technological changes, youngsters today conduct their lives digitally, giving them insights their teachers do not have, according to cyberbullying experts. They are also going through similar developmental phases, and may be listened to more attentively than adults speaking on the same topic. School bullying is well known to be harmful to children, impacting their learning as well as their mental health.
