Cyberbullying 2.0


Six Carson City school girls were arrested for posting an "Attack A Teacher" Facebook event. The girls claimed it was a joke, but the local sheriff and school district took the post seriously. The site had threatening comments, and 18 students clicked "Yes," they would attend. Typically, students have harassed other students. Is this a new form of cyberbullying? How is it changing the classroom? And who's ultimately responsible for policing kids online? The experts weigh in. Tell us what you think.
