Irish pupils are among the most likely to experience cyberbullying. A confidential report is to recommend to the Cabinet that anti-cyberbullying lessons are introduced as a “core element” in primary and secondary school curriculums. Teachers need to be brought up to speed with internet trends and more money is needed for tech-shy parents, the report, seen by the Irish Independent, says. The addition of classes relating specifically to online abuse would be a new departure for schools but comes after an EU study identified Irish children as being among the most likely in Europe to experience some form of cyberbullying. The ‘Report Of The Internet Content Governance Advisory Group’ sets out a wide range of measures that the Government should implement to make the internet safer for children.
