Enterprise High School is educating its students about the dangers of cyber bullying.
The school's Assistant Principal, Ricky Britt, decided it was time to take action against online bullying. "We live in a different age now," he said. "With this digital world, it's a different thing. Most of it starts out of school, and then it comes into the school."
Students at the school led the cyber-safety assembly, reminding their peers that online actions carry far-reaching effects. "They might not see the importance of it right now," said Jalen Hooks, a student at the school. "Later on they are going to wish they had paid more attention to it in high school."
Students also admitted that they need help from their parents when facing cyber bullying. "Parents may not notice everything that their children are doing if they are home alone. It's hard to control it, but they just have to teach them," said Ashley Donovan, who is also a student at Enterprise High.
The school will continue teaching the effects of online actions in a series of workshops. Those will take place next week.
