This Fact Sheet defines sexting as it occurs among adolescents, and summarizes the current state of research on the problem. It also details informal and formal responses – particularly from legal and political authorities – and describes what schools should do as it relates to policy and response efforts. Finally, it suggests some practical prevention strategies that educators can implement to reduce its occurrence and perceived acceptability among students.
