Government officials in several states are proposing laws that would help students better comprehend fake news and misinformation on the Internet, according to the Associated Press. Following the revelation that social media, including Twitter and Facebook were inundated with fake news during the 2016 election, lawmakers and school officials want to work to better inform their students on proper Internet practice. The AP reports that legislation that would encourage schools to teach students how to identify false information has already been passed in Washington, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Mexico. States including Arizona, New York, and Hawaii are also said to be considering possible bills.
