Overview

This book is directed to academics, educators, and government policy-makers who are concerned about addressing emerging cyber-bullying and anti-authority student expressions through the use of cell phone and Internet technologies. There is a current policy vacuum relating to the extent of educators’ legal responsibilities to intervene when such expression takes place outside of school hours and school grounds on home computers and personal cell phones. Students, teachers, and school officials are often targets of such expression. The author analyzes government and school responses by reviewing positivist paradigms. Her review of a range of legal frameworks and judicial decisions from constitutional, human rights, child protection, and tort law perspectives redirects attention to legally substantive and pluralistic approaches that can help schools balance student free expression, supervision, safety, and learning.

From the Publisher
"Any book entitled “Confronting Cyber-Bullying” would be welcomed eagerly by those to whom this volume is addressed…The subtitle – “What Schools Need to Know to Control Misconduct and Avoid Legal Consequences” – enhances that potential appeal…Shaheen Shariff’s book is not simply the only game in town at this still early stage; it also does something that has rarely been done in the field of cyber-law…timely and cogent scholarship…a most welcome innovation for those of us who savor the legal challenges of electronic and digital communication.”
—Robert O'Neil, Director of the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression and Professor of Law Emeritus and University Professor Emeritus at the University of Virginia, First Amendment
