AN ANTI-BULLYING expert has said that primary schools need to take a more proactive approach in combating cyberbullying.

Though it has been argued that this should be the responsibility of parents, as most of it happens outside of schools, TCD’s Marion Flanagan said that a three-pronged approach involving pupils, schools and parents is needed.

So we’re asking: Should schools be responsible for tackling cyberbullying?

Poll Results:

Schools and parents should both be responsible (1745)
I'm not sure (1117)
No, it should be up to parents (548)
Yes, schools should handle it (93)
