It is rather very shocking to see that social networking sites are being used by students to criticize their school teachers and give their opinions on them. Earlier, it was only the peers who were targeted and intimidated by their fellow beings.
In Leeming Senior School of Western Australia, the students openly criticized their female math teacher, following which, a dozen students from the school were suspended. Around 600 people had been found to have signed up to the site, created especially to degrade the math teacher.
In another incident which recently took place, a 16 year old guy from North Albany Senior High School, received a warning from the vigilance department, after he was found to have posted threatening comments against his teacher. Although there were about 200 students who had been a part of the Facebook group, which gave specific names of teachers who were threatened by the students, not all of them were forwarded any warnings.
Edith Cowan University cyber bullying researcher, Donna Cross says that it is a rising trend.
According to her, researchers have found many websites, which intentionally encourage students to give derogatory remarks against their teachers.
Regrettably, it is still not known that up to which extent these sites are being judiciously followed by the young people.
