7: Every school has an Acceptable Use Policy. (AUP) is the Rules applied by many networks which restrict the use to which the network may be put. Our school has an (AUP) but it doesn't say anything about cyberbullying. In our schools (AUP) i think it should say what can happen on the Internet and how they can be bullied. They should also say what can happen if you post anything on the Internet and how you have no control of what happens, because once it's out there you can't take it back. | Teacher | Acceptable Use Policy | ________________________________________________

9: True Story: | A kid who went to a middle school in Washington had been bullied. After his parents learned that the student was terrorized in a bullying attack by peers and at some points, by the teacher, they wanted the teacher fired. This had happened in February but it wasn't discovered until a video had been put out on the Internet by a student who was in the class videotaping what happened. In the video it showed the boy being thrown around like a toy by the student and the teacher did not step in to help but instead he encouraged it. Then the boy was mad so it looked like he had tried to take down the teacher but the teacher was three times his size and overpowered him. The teacher had threw him on the floor and then got on top of him holding him down, that is what the video had shown. The teachers name was Rosi and he was suspended for 10 days without pay, given new classroom management training and moved to a different middle school. But the boys parents have requested a criminal investigation and are calling for Rosi's termination.

12: Bully victims story. cyber bullying and school bullying hurts When i started year 8 about 5 months ago, i started out new, i started out who i really was. A goth, and every day now i get comments online and behind my back and to my face saying "your an emo, you suck, go slit your wrists, just f*** off and die" and blah blah bah. I'm 13 and i have had enough, i have learned to take this for a few months, some people last years. But i just wanted to say if any of you bully anyone, i say "what comes around goes around", which means if you did something to someone else it will eventually happen to you and you wont like it. Just ignore this pathetic lot of school kids if you can ignore them and be who you are. Thats all that matters and if you have friends that cant accept you (i had friends like that) then its time to find new friends. PLEASE DONT BE THE BULLY, BE THE ONE THAT SAVES THE VICTIM!!!!! —Guest wants it all to stop
