Cyber bullying on the rise
As digital technology marks the pathway to how children are educated, the risks around online safety are fast becoming a concern amongst teachers. With instances of cyberbullying and the viewing of homophobic, racist and pornographic material in the classroom at an all-time high, teachers are calling for more support to help with online safety issues.
Our special report has found that within the last twelve months, cyberbullying has increased by 37%, with 66% of teachers citing this as the biggest online safety concern in schools. Unprepared to deal with these issues, teachers have voiced their concerns that they just aren’t equipped with the right tools to teach the dangers of the online world, with the majority stating that the government should be doing more to help tackle the problem.
