Deliberation Materials: Cyberbullying

Should our democracy allow schools to punish students for off-campus cyberbullying?

In 2010, Phoebe Prince, a 15-year-old living in the U.S. state of Massachusetts, committed suicide after being bullied by other students. She suffered both face-to-face bullying and cyberbullying, including abusive comments made off-campus on Internet social networks. After her suicide, nine students involved in the cyberbullying faced criminal charges. Phoebe’s story was widely covered in the media, but there are many stories like her in the United States of America.
