This manual for school administrators is dedicated to the competing principles: 1) that schools are not required to surrender control over school activities to students, and 2) that students are exposed to a robust exchange of ideas. The classroom needs to be a marketplace of ideas where First Amendment free expression exists, but a safe and orderly school environment conducive to learning must be maintained.
This manual provides public school leaders and front-line school personnel with data-driven solutions for resolving cyber bullying incidents.

I'd recommend this text for all administrators!" -- Jill Gildea, Superintendent
