Should schools teach responsible online behavior?

Common Sense thinks so. Our free Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum is available for teachers of grades K-12. With lessons on everything from cell phones to cyberbullying, it teaches students to make safe, smart, and ethical decisions. Definitely tell your teacher about it.

We also have a program for families to help parents and caregivers navigate the digital world. These are turnkey resources like videos, tip sheets, and even back-to-school night promotion materials. It's truly everything you need to help your community raise responsible, respectful digital citizens.

Yeah, children should be taught how to make good choices and how to act responsibly online to avoid them making bad decisions.

No,because I don't believe in cyber bad behaviors and I encourage kids to make the right choices
