Online Speech Are students free? Well technology such as cellphones, texting emails, and Facebook has changed communication, online bullying has become a problem for some school. Can school be allowed to block and punish us on what we say through texting and online? Although there are some students who abuse technology and use it to bully others at schools, but schools should. Reasons include the idea that online bullying is not as widespread a problem as many believes, it is not abnormally to the classroom environments, and finally, limiting online speech violates students rights to speak freely as protected by the United States Constitution. One reason why schools should limit on line speech is because cyber bullying is a widespread problem that affects bot students and teachers. Joint ATL and Teacher Support Network Press Release from London that was published in April of 2009 with every negative effect such as reduced confidence and self-esteem. Some may argue that these numbers are not very high and do not justify limiting online speech, these percentage do not show that cyber bullying is impacting the schools environment is someway teachers who are affected may begin to question their abilities as an educator while student victims may see a decline in their performance. Second reason why schools should limit is because it can hurt other peoples feelings. K.K a 12th grader at Muscleman High School, created a hate website based on one person, but she violate the school policy against harassment, bullying, and intimidation. K.K say, this case involves off campus no school related speech, so the school administrator had no power to discipline her.

Third reason why schools should limit online speech is because it can affect education. A teacher tells a principal that one of his students stole his privacy and dignity, so he wont be able to teach correctly. One of his students probably tried to steal his privacy and dignity by making fun of him online, and the teacher tried to suspend the student but couldnt because it was off schools campus. There are some who will argue that schools should not limit students online speech. Reasons they may state include the ideas that online bullying is not as widespread as problems as many believe; it is not abnormally disruptive to the students rights to speak freely as protected by the United States Constitution.
