Online, Bullying Risks Build Up
Students are under ever-increasing pressure to perform academically, to navigate complex social scenes in school and online, and to keep safe.
Pennsylvania’s new Safe 2 Say Something school threat reporting system generated more than 23,000 tips in its first six months of operation, with submissions via mobile app, website, and tip line. Most reports were not about threats of violence toward schools or other people. Instead, bullying, self-harm, and suicide were the most common concerns brought forward.
