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

We’ve just released some new research conducted for Microsoft by Cross-Tab Marketing Services & Telecommunications Research Group.  The survey of 505 parents of 5-18 year-olds, and 495 educators from middle, junior and high schools in the U.S. was conducted online between September 21st and October 4th, 2010.

The survey found that while most are concerned about cyberbullying, our research suggests they could be more proactive about their involvement with 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.

    After 23 years in juvenile court, I believe that teenagers often learn from the experiences of their peers, not just from being lectured by those in authority. Consequently, “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” was published in January, 2010.

    Endorsed by Dr. Phil ["Bullied to Death"], “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” presents real cases of teens in trouble over their online and cell phone activities. Civil & criminal sanctions have been imposed on teens over their emails, blogs, text messages, Facebook and YouTube entries and more. TCI is interactive and promotes education & awareness so that our youth will begin to “Think B4 U Click.”

    Thanks for looking at “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” on [publisher] or on [a free website for & about teens and the law].

    Regards, -Judge Tom
