Current Issues in Middle Level Education, v18 n1 p1-7 2013

Cyberbullying is a 21st Century phenomenon that represents a problem of significant magnitude in schools across the country. It is most prevalent in middle schools and is rapidly increasing among adolescents who exist in a "wired" culture. Schools have not been equipped with appropriate ways to deal with this new form of aggression which often takes place outside of school, yet it can disrupt the victim's education and feeling safe at school. School districts are now being challenged to develop policies to address this issue as it has been noted that it can cause psychological damage that has been equated to violence on school grounds and has been reported as the cause of teen suicide. This review of literature will describe various forms of cyberbullying, a portrayal of victims and offenders, prevention programs, and policy implications for school districts.
