Is violence only happening in school?

Violence does not only occur in school buildings or at school-sponsored events.

In a digital world, the school community is extended through SMS messages, email, chat and social media.

Do you know that victims of cyberbullying are more likely to use alcohol and drugs and skip school? They also are more likely to receive poor grades and experience low self-esteem and health problems. In extreme situations, cyberbullying has led to suicide!
