Transcript of Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying By Joe, Nate, Renee and Trish
First Amendment Center
“Words that convey ideas are one thing;
that are used as

quite another.”
Students should be free to express ideas about things like politics or religion!
When ideas cause
psychological or emotional harm
they are not protected under freedom of speech
“Censorship doesn’t make schools safer.
On the contrary,
suppressing speech only deepens divisions
fuels intolerance.

“To prepare students for citizenship in a pluralistic democracy that values the First Amendment,
schools must be places that are both safe and free.

safe school is free of bullying and harassment

— and
a free school is safe for student speech
, including speech about issues that divide us.”
It’s important to note that as long as what is being said
isn’t defamatory, threatening, disruptive, or harassing
it is protected under the 1st amendment.
However, once it crosses that line that’s when it can be considered
cyber bullying
