And @helloimawkward1, there ARE laws against cyberbullying.

Ya know what? The school is acting ridiculous! I understand that she shouldn't have posted that on facebook, and it IS cyberbullying. To confront her is okay. But you know what? You should see what most high schoolers write on facebook. Frankly, the school shouldn't be snooping her FB anyways, I mean talk about stalker-ish! The mom of the boy is C-R-A-Z-Y to talk to the school. If you really think it's a problem, talk to the girls' parents', not the school! And also, your email is private, giving them your password is just crazy. She's a 12 year old girl for gosh's sake, what do you think she talks about with her girlfriends? Or what about a private email to mom? No, you can't see that, school, it's none of ur business!!!!

Okay, let's all talk about this like civilized people. It wasn't right for this girl to be hating on people publicly, and if she's cussing someone out she obviously has done it before (you don't go from an innocent 12 year old to a trolling, cussing young girl). However, it IS a violation of rights, and talking about sex? In middle school? Middle schoolers are GOING to talk about sex, whether it's a rumor of a older kid or a joke, it's going to happen everywhere. Both sides are doing wrong, and maybe hopefully the 12 year old can get rid of the sailor mouth and learn her lesson, along with the school's administrators.

I don't think something should be counted as bullying if the person is not offending or hurting that other person's feelings in any way intentionally. Calling someone mean should never be counted as bullying is the person has a good reason to call them that. Bullying is the intentional act of etiher physically or emotionally hurting someone again and again and that is not it.

That school is highly disrespectful. That girl was smart. The school had no right to ask for her Facebook passwords. She could go to another school for all they cared and they still would hunt her down. They cannot ask for private information because it is a basic Internet safety rule. The staff or students could find it and start putting up mean Facebook post. Who would they blame? The girl, of course. I hope she wins the case. I know what she said was kind of disrespectful but it was not bullying. Maybe the hall monitor was bullying her. We may never know now.

I think this case could have and should have been avoided; since bullying has become such a huge issue, schools have been trying to eliminate bullying, but they are overreacting to what does and does not constitute as bullying. Calling someone "mean" does not count as bullying. I think my school should be able to decide what's OK and what's not OK for students to post on social networks.

Thats ridiculous..and kinda creepy. If my school kept snooping around my business, i would be totally creeped out...

I think she was being very rude. Because she was talking about someone in her school it is considered bullying and the school should definitely know about it. This girl is a mean little girl and deserves to be punished. No matter the cost.

but i still think it's a bit nosy for the school to take her email and facebook. she just should've gotten a very serious discusion and maybe a detention,just depends what she said

I'm actually watching the movie Cyberbully right now,and i think that they should make a law against cyberbullying. But the thing is,it depends on whats being said. if it's enough to make someone kill themselves,you know it's bad.
