Briarcliff students learn about cyber bullying
Students at Briarcliff Middle School completed a course Monday on Internet safety and the dangers of cyber bullying.
Parents and teachers say Internet etiquette should be taught in school along with computer use, typing and software in order to prepare students. Though the sixth-graders who took the course say they've never witnessed cyber bullying, they know how harmful normal bullying can be.
The "Internet smarts" program was provided for the school by Cablevision, the parent company of News 12.
State Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer handed out certificates to students who completed the course.
