strongly agree with your statement. Your statements are very dauntless and important due to the fact this is a main issue to our society. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Cyberbullying and physically bullying both…[Read more]
I am excited to read your post, “Should Online Speech be Limited? ” because I agree with the point you are getting across. For example, cyber bullying lowers people’s self esteem. As well as their privacy being invaded.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “…38.6% had answered that due to the times they were bullied it created a huge affect which has affected their self esteem”. I think this is agreeable because when many people have low self esteem it leads to depression which can also sadly lead to suicide. Also, nobody should ever feel bad about themselves because we are supposed to be confident in ourselves and how we are. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you explain yourself really well. You also have good facts on what you’re saying and you back yourself up well.
You have a lot of strong points in your argument and you make a decent case for why schools should be allowed to censor online speech. I think you could have made the argument even better if you had acknowledged the other side of the argument and given a response to those issues. By addressing issues like first amendment rights, internet laws and firewalls, freedom of symbolic speech, and citing court cases, you could have made a very effective argument for why schools should be allowed to censor online speech. Overall very well done.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
