If a school teaches computers (which my daughter's school does), then it should be required to teach online safety.

I think schools do need to educate on the safety of internet safety, however you only need to search Facbook to see that it won't work unless parents are not monitoring their children. Listing where you live is enough for any predator.

Absolutely! At OLR in LB this is instilled in students from the very beginning. Students should be taught about safe sites and how to protect themselves.

I don't know if they should be "responsible" but I think it should be a part of the curriculum. The schools emphasize fire safety during the elementary years and this is also a form of safety.

Yes, parents should be responsible to teach safety, but many parents are ignorant to the safety themselves, so yes, the schools need to go over it. Just as they go over drug and alcohol. The private schools probably don't have to be as concerned tho

I am put off that any parent would put the responsibility of the school teaching online safety to their child. This is a parent responsibility period.

Schools should have filters and blocks, but we should be our childrens safety teachers.

Not responsible, but perhaps a part of the educating process.

To me, their responsibility ends when a student leaves the school.

Then, the parents need to take responsibility.

NO. Just make them aware.

Since most schools have free-WIFI, absolutely! On the other hand, if you aren't on the same page as the parents, or have enough support from the parents to follow through at home...it does very little anyway.
