Hester, Wesley; Fenn, Walter L.
Alabama Journal of Educational Leadership, v1 p55-69 Sep 2014
Cyberbullying is a growing phenomenon influencing schools, which must be addressed. Transformational school leaders, as the literature suggests, employ strategies for addressing cyberbullying including forming partnerships, implementing education and awareness programs, and applying disciplinary action. The purpose of this study is to understand how cyberbullying affects stakeholders and how transformational school leaders can better address the issue. Perceptions regarding cyberbullying were collected and analyzed using focus group interviews from school administrators, school counselors, parents, and external authorities. Content analysis identified five significant themes. Discussion of results, stakeholder implications, and recommendations include ideas regarding stakeholder partnerships, education and awareness programs, school disciplinary action, parental supervision and control, and ideas concerning relationships and trust.
