A cyberbullying incident that led to a lawsuit against a school really got me thinking about how much control a school has over online bullying that takes place after school hours and off school grounds.
A video was posted on youtube, documenting about twenty Beverly Vista Middle School students who were bad mouthing a female classmate. School officials learned of the online video and suspended the student who uploaded it on the grounds that it was cyberbullying.
The student then filed a lawsuit against the district claiming that it doesn't fall under the schools jurisdiction because it was off campus.
What do you think? Do schools have the right to punish online bullying acts that takes place after school hours and off school grounds?
