In the article “Should schools punish off-campus cyberbullying” (Upfront, PATCHIN, 2017 PDF) I learned that 53 percent of voters voted no to schools not being able to control cyberbullying off campus. while on the other hand there is 47 percent voted yes to schools being able to take action against campus cyberbullying. well in my beliefs I believe that a school should be able to punish students for off-campus cyberbullying since there could be side effects to someone’s mental health if you are being bullied. you may experience stress, depression, anxiety, and even loss of confidence as well as low self-esteem due to the fact of being bullied. A student won’t be able to concentrate at school with some many things going on in them and a school not being able to help. A school is like a student home since we are there mostly the time so I believe it’s only fair for the school to make us feel welcome and safe.

Do you believe schools should be in power to control off-campus cyberbullying?

I think what is happening is that through the years cyberbullying has become such a big strong issue impacting students and may impact their learning ability since they have too many problems going on that’s why there are people voting either yes or no to schools taking power to someone that’s cyberbullying off campus .just image students feeling broken and going for help and there school not being able to do something would make them think that the school system isn’t creating a safe and peaceful environment for those students that are being victims of cyberbullying.

Dear Blanca,

I am interested in your post, “ “Should Schools Punish off-campus cyberbullying?” because cyberbullying is big on and off campus. It’s sad to hear that kids have lower self-esteem because of bullying. Schools should help on campus so they are more welcome as well.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “cyberbullying has become such a big strong issue impacting students and may impact their learning ability since they have too many problems” I think this is interesting as well because schools should help students with cyberbullying, on and off campus so they put in more effort in school. Schools should take the extra step because 47 percent of people voted yes to help students.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this topic was very interesting because you explain it so well. This is also very important to help kids who can’t focus in school. I believe that schools should stop cyberbullying off campus as well.

Dear Blanca,

I am very interested in your post, “Should Schools Punish off-campus cyberbullying?” because it doesn’t matter if many say, “schools shouldn’t get into these arguments” because when cyberbullying gets to the point of messing with someone’s mental health, something should be done by the school, whether it’s their situation or not. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “You may experience stress, depression, anxiety, and even loss of confidence as well as low self-esteem due to the fact of being bullied.” To me, this was one that stood out the most, it’s agreeable because these are the effects of what cyberbullying can do on a person. No student, teacher, or even parent should go through online harassment. Cyberbullying creates more damage in a person than we can imagine. Many will try backing that up with their first amendment which is freedom of speech, but they don’t realize how immature that is. Causing mental problems to another individual is unjustifiable. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the way you explained what you believe in. Schools should definitely punish off-campus cyberbullying.

hey Blanca, I am very interested in your point of view in this argument about why “Should schools punish off-campus cyberbullying?” I liked how supported your statement with some evidence from a source and I do in fact agree 100% with you, Blanca… I also think what is happening is that through the years cyberbullying has become such a big strong issue impacting students and may impact their learning ability since they have too many problems going on that’s why there are people voting either yes or no to schools taking power to someone that’s cyberbullying off campus .just image students feeling broken and going for help and there school not being able to do something would make them think that the school system isn’t creating a safe and peaceful environment for those students that are being victims of cyberbullying.

I am intrigued by your post, “The Five W’s of cyberbullying” because I believe that whether you’re on school grounds or not, students should be punished either way as it can cause harm to the individual.  The first amendment does not protect anyone who disturbs persons learning environment.  Many argue that it’s a violation of their right to privacy, but I disagree with that because schools should be able to check on students’ privacy to make sure every student is safe from bullying and threats made by someone.

One thing that you said that stood out to me was, “ I believe that a school should be able to punish students for off-campus cyberbullying since there could be side effects to someone’s mental health if you are being bullied.”  I strongly agree with this because it is the schools’ job to protect students from cyberbullying and have a safe learning environment for them.

This is a very important topic to talk about because it really has negative impacts on those who are victims of this.
