Assemblyman Mark Johns (R,C-Webster) recently voted for cyberbullying legislation in the State Assembly. Johns sponsors similar legislation.
“Our children should only have to focus on two things: succeeding in school and just being a kid. Yet all too often, bullies can make the formative years a living hell, and it has only gotten worse with technology and social media.
“This form of bullying, cyberbullying, is something children can’t escape – even when they leave their school. Cyberbullying has impacted nearly a third of our children. It’s important that schools, parents and the entire community band together to recognize and help end this troubling problem among our young people.”
Johns adds that the legislation is designed to protect children and help parents.
