Cyberbullying: An Exploration of Secondary School Administrators' Experiences with Cyberbullying Incidents in Louisiana
Castile, Holly; Harris, Sandra
Education Leadership Review, v15 n1 p52-66 Mar 2014
This qualitative phenomenological study explored school administrators' experiences with cyberbullying. The participants were secondary administrators in Louisiana public schools. Notable findings indicated that cyberbullying is a complex problem because the greatest amount of cyberbullying is occurring off-campus. This study found Facebook and other social media sites are the most common places for cyberbullying to occur; therefore, students need to be taught to use social media responsibly. Findings illustrated that female students were more likely to participate in cyberbullying, cellphones are used as a source for cyberbully, and there is a disparity between administrators regarding the effectiveness of Louisiana cyberbullying laws.
