  • Cyberbullying from Classroom to Courtroom, Panel 1—Cyberbullying In The Courtroom: Law, Litigation, And The First Amendment - Remarks of Douglas Abrams

    Taken together, several recent studies suggest that cyberbullying victimizes between 20 percent and 25 percent of middle school and high school students nationwide.5 Some polls of students report even higher numbers.6 In a study conducted this summer, 76 percent of fourteen- to twenty-four-year-olds identified digital abuse as a serious problem for people their age.7 Researchers even suggest that some students have come to view cyberbullying as ―an expectation of high school.‖8 Other researchers predict that the volume of cyberbullying incidents will likely grow with anticipated advances in technology itself.
