Debate: What's the Best Way to Stop Bullying?

Cyberbullying is relatively easy to get away with, and nearly half of students report being bullied online. A new app could stop this trend. The app is called STOPit and allows students to report bullying anonymously. Schools buy the app and ask students to send in screenshots and report on when they see bullying on social media. Listen to hear more about this new way to address bullying and then debate with your students: What’s the best way to stop bullying?
