Download: Students and Social Media
Middle school students in New Jersey could soon be logging onto their social media accounts for a grade.
The state Senate has approved a bill requiring sixth-through eighth-grade public school students to take a course on being responsible on social media, according to nydailynews.com.
One reason lawmakers cited for the bill was cyber bullying. They said some students may not realize the impact their online actions have.
The bill is expected to become law by the 2014-2015 school year.
