Story on cyber-bullying draws out cyber-bullies

March

B4s_cyber030309_58699c We always love it when an education story ends up being one of the most commented stories of the day.

Yesterday, our story on cyber-bullying was so popular that it was among the most commented for hours on end.

Unfortunately, most of the comments were slightly off target, revolving around the fact that the photo (shown) that ran with the story featured some ungrammatical sentences that had been written on a classroom white board.

Rather than focusing on the effects of cyber-bullying and local school districts' efforts to combat it, most people zeroed in on the errors and never got past them. So it was gratifying to read this comment from "T," who posted at 5:01 p.m.:

"Let the spelling go ... this only shows how much we need bullying education for adults as well! It is awesome to see our children are getting this service ... way to go Family Service Centers - maybe Family Service Centers can hold a class for adults?"
