The National Association of Headteachers (NAHT) is telling its members to be more willing to take on the adult bullies after receiving a number calls from teachers who have been cyberbullied. According to NAHT the majority of complaints are about parents using the SNS to criticise teachers and their school's leadership.
A parent spoke about her use of Facebook to slander the school:
"For three days, I vented my anger and my spleen on my Facebook page. If they had come to speak to me and make those appointments I wouldn't have had to use the Internet to get my point across. No-one at the school was listening.
Ha, and we wonder where cyber bullying comes from, what sort of message does this send to her child, she is scarily oblivious to the sort of character she is showing herself to be. SNS are not for ignorant people to discuss subjects in a completely inappropriate way, yes 3 days is a bit excessive, but what was happening during those 3 days in school? Are you sure the situation wasn't being noted? Instead of throwing your toys out of the pram and stamping your feet realise that schools don't revolve around you and your needs, yes bullying is an awful situation but as the saying goes, you can't fight fire with fire.
