Hi, I clicked on this because of the Elon Musk meme and I am only a little disappointed. I guess that it is just an exercise of your free speech that should completely be protected by the first amendment. Most schools cannot and do not punish bullying outside of school, so I think that allowing schools to punish cyber bullying that happens outside…[Read more]
I genuinely like what you have to say here until you get to saying that property boundaries are stopping Native Americans from practicing traditions. I think that this is too easy of an answer to a complex issue that cannot simply be resolved by just opening up the flood gates. We have had a long history of people abusing systems, specifically the…[Read more]
China has a fairly big problem, which is their surveillance. The Chinese government has implemented policies that start with surveillance and an artificially enhanced police force and end wherever the Chinese
I liked what your article did, and I really liked that you called out that school for not updating its information on bullying, however, I don’t feel as though this article is looking at the issue in the right way.

This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
