NC Law Protects Teachers From Online Bullying

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:21 PM EDT
North Carolina is the first state in the union to take a stand against the online bullying of teachers. Students face up to a $1,000 fine and up to 60 days in jail for posts on the internet intended to "torment or intimidate" a teacher.
The Buncombe Association of Educators applauds the bold new law, saying it's encouraging to see lawmakers take a proactive approach. The association says there have been no cases of a Buncombe County student bullying a teacher online.
The law also prohibits a student from signing up with a fake profile or signing an instructor up for pornographic material.
