My Two Cents: Leave Cybercivility To School Administrators

“ … Our approach has been more to educate our students as responsible and ethical digital citizens.” Marco Clark, President of Bishop McNamara High School
Public school students behaving poorly in cyberspace resulted in the Montgomery County Public Schools creating a Cybercivility Task Force. Do we really need a task force? Is a task force really the best way to develop respectful digital citizens?
Having served on three MCPS task forces, I know the drill — lots of meetings, a report, a presentation to the Board of Education, and maybe two years down the road new policies and procedures emerge.
And so to save time, I was wondering: Why not just kick this problem down the food chain.
