Cyberbullying Education and Regulation


Our colleague Adam Thierer from the Progress & Freedom Foundation has recently published an informative white paper worth reading entitled “Cyberbullying Legislation: Why Education is Preferable to Regulation.” Justin and I keep having to point out in various conversations that strictly punitive strategies fall short in their effort to deter misbehavior, especially among a youthful population that does not tend to think about long-term implications or consequences.  We continue to champion efforts to educate and raise awareness among youth, and believe that formal research must continually occur to identify patterns and trends in cyberbullying while also discovering its causes and consequences across large groups of adolescents. Along these lines, in the next few weeks we’ll be sharing with you our most recent findings from data collected in May of this year.
