  • The bullying could continue during school hours

    If a person is getting cyberbullied it can continue during school. The bully could still attack the person over the internet during school and could attack them in person instead of the internet. I feel that the school should do something about it because if the cops aren't doing anything about it the person can attempt or even be successful to kill themselves.

    Think the schools should punish off-campus cyber bullying because it should not be tolerated. I think it is not okay for kids to cyber bully. If someone cyber bullies they should be punished by the schools and the parents. One way to punish someone is to give them an after school detention.

  • Yes, schools should definitely punish cyber-bullying, even if off-campus.

    Although the event did not happen in school, the school is responsible for what may happen after the event in school. It may affect a child's learning ability, social life, and how they participate in class. All of these problems happen in school. Other authorities should be contacted and involved, but the school should not be completely disregarded and not involved.

  • Yes They Should

    I think the schools should punish off-campus cyber bullying because it should not be tolerated. I think it is not okay for kids to cyber bully. If someone cyber bullies they should be punished by the schools and the parents. One way to punish someone is to give them an after school detention.

  • Not Fair, but Not Their Right

    I personally hate cyber-bullying. I hate bullying period. This is coming from a guy who was bullied during school. Although bullying isn't right & I'd hate to see others being bullied, I still feel that if the bullying does not take place on school grounds it is not the schools job to punish kids while of campus. I also say that they should punish it if they are using the schools property or technology they should be punished.

  • I think they should not.

    I think schools should not punish kids for cyber bullying off site, though it is not fair to kids for being bullied at places like Facebook because it is not their job. State law states that the student that attends a school is the school's responsibility until they reach their house. Once the child is in their house it is the parents responsibility not theirs.

  • Bullies' Rights Unprotected

    The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled during "Doninger v. Niehoff" that "a student may be disciplined for expressive content, even conduct occurring off school grounds, when this conduct would foreseeably create a risk of substantial disruption within the school environment, [and] it was similarly foreseeable that the off-campus expression might also reach campus." Because the students who are engaging in cyberbullying are doing so in a manner that will almost certainly result in it reaching campus in some manner, this action is not protected under the First Amendment.

  • Yes, The School Must Punish Cyber-bullying

    Cyber-bullying damages the victim's academic capability by attacking them mentally and emotionally, which may affect their physical well being as well. Since the student is attacking another student in the school, the school is not completely unrelated to the issue. It has all the rights to ensure a safe environment for its students. Having a bullied student in the class does NOT promote a safe learning environment for the rest of the class.

  • I Think They Should

    I think they should because people should not have to put up with it. I think people who cyberbully should be punished in every way shape or form. I think that people who are getting cyberbullied should get help right away. No kid/adult should take any of this. I think the people who are getting cyberbullied should bring an adult with them to discuss the situation.

  • No no no

    Schools should not punish students for what they do outside of school because it has nothing to do with them . Also the first amendment says that people have rights to say what ever they want as long as it doesn't cause damage to some ones rep and at the end of the day teachers are just regular people with no power what so ever.

  • No no no

    The teachers have power over you so if you cyberbully at school that is different because they have no power and they are just regular people and so are you and so you are protected by the first amendment right that says that you have the freedom of speech and they can't go into your personal life.

  • What do you do?

    Schools should not suspend people for things that happen at home. Monitoring students and suspending them for things they say online is wrong at infringes on their first amendment right to free speech. O o o o o o oo o oo oo oooo oo oo oo ooo ooo oo

  • No. Just no.

    School may have authority over students at school and/or during school hours, but they have no business crawling into their personal lives and getting them in trouble for something that the school has no authority over. If the bullying takes place at school them the authority of the school can step in, but if the school is not involved directly to the harassment, then they have no reason to invade the students personal, PRIVATE life.

  • Its has nothing to do with school hours

    If it has nothing to do with school hours why should the school handle it. If it has nothing with school involved why should waste their time handling something that should be handled at home.When school have to waste their time helping something that cant be solved. That is why they shouldn't handle it

  • Why should they

    When a student is bullying another student at school, that behavior falls under the school’s jurisdiction, and administrators should punish the harasser. But it’s a slippery slope to reprimand teens for what they do off-campus. What about other rule-breaking behaviors, like drinking or staying out late? With laws like these, we’re in danger of giving schools way too much power over our personal lives.
    A school’s purpose is to educate you. If administrators really want to stop cyberbullying, they should teach students why it’s wrong, how it hurts people, and what they can do to stop it. For lasting change, our culture’s cyberbullying problem needs to be fixed before the bullying happens

  • Its none of their business

    I got suspended for writing diss tracks but I find it stupid that they can do that cuz what does it have to do with school. They should not be able to tell me what to do when I'm off campus because that's my parents job not theirs and I want freedom.
