New research shows parents and educators concerned about cyberbullying, but still not a top priority for schools

Microsoft recently conducted a survey among parents and
educators on the issue of cyberbullying and cyberbullying policies in
schools.  While most parents are concerned about
cyberbullying, our research suggests that parents and schools could take more action on the issue.

  • 3 in 4 parents are
    very or somewhat concerned about cyberbullying.

  • 3 in 4 educators
    believe cyberbullying is a very or somewhat serious problem at their school.

  • Educators consider
    cyberbullying (76%) as big an issue as smoking (75%) and drugs (75%).

  • 2 in 5 parents report
    their child has been involved in a cyberbullying incident.

  • 1 in 4 educators have
    been cyber-harassment victims.
