I am agree with your post about how parents should take action on their kids social life and not have the school take control of it because although it may cause a distraction at school there’s only so much a school can do and most of the time when schools get involved it causes a bigger problem for the student .

This is an interesting topic. I understand your point that schools should intervene in harmful online activity in order to provide a safer environment for their students. I do have a couple questions though. How would schools know when they need to intervene? How would cyberbullying between people in different schools or even in different states be punished if at all? Would the schools just have to act on reported incidents or would they monitor students phones? Would this monitoring create an untrusting and violating situation in itself? I think your point is valid, but I would like to hear your thoughts on some of the repercussions or flaws of schools being able to limit students’ online speech.
This a really interesting piece of writing. I like how you included information and quotes from a committee hearing to supplement your argument. It was also interesting how you brought up the issue of free speech when it comes to censoring what students are able to say in the interest of protecting others. Though on a slightly different topic of free speech and social media, you may find this article helpful/interesting https://constitutioncenter.org/blog/is-high-school-student-speech-protected-online

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.
