Rather than banning the tools students use to bully others, educators should deal with their behavior. That’s the message that Dave Meister delivered on the Connected Principals blog today. Meister directs Illinois’ first cooperative high school, Paris Cooperative High School, and said in the video that he’s been dealing with several incidents of cyberbullying in his building in the last week. These incidents, along with the university student’s death, have prompted the school to think about how to deal with students’ behavior. “The answer to ending bullying or misuse of social media is not to ban it … what we need to do is talk about the behaviors that are unacceptable,” he said in the video.
