Thanks for this analysis. However, I was shocked at a broadcast news report in which a school district official said the school was telling students not to use social media indiscriminately --with no mention that bullying is unacceptable in any form, electronic or otherwise.

If the schools ARE giving students the broader message, then editors of the broadcast news missed a huge opportunity to help disabuse teenagers of the notion that bullying is simply a fact of life in junior high and high school -- and probably grade school.

There is a TV news report --I think from a Sioux Falls station--in which a school official says bullying wasn't involved. I suspect that this is what the family is reacting to.
