Cyber Bullying

Is cyber bullying an issue in your school? In a Canadian Teachers’ Federation poll in 2008, 34% of respondents knew of students in their community who had been cyber bullied in the past year. Given the close relationship and mutual respect that is often forged between school athletic coaches and high school students, athletic leaders are in a position to be aware of and to help address issues like cyber bullying, hazing and other matters that can negatively impact the life of a young person.
