Should schools be responsible for teaching online safety?

Schools should teach about online safety, but it is ultimately up to the parents to make sure what their child is viewing is appropriate. Maybe a class educating the parents on how to enable these safeguards on their computers would be beneficial.

How can schools completely teach online safety if parents are letting their kids roam the internet where ever they want too without any parental controls or monitoring. If parents would become proactive in their kids social awareness for peer pressur

Yes. Parents, teachers, anyone your child is comfortable talking to works well.

It takes a village to raise a child. We are ALL responsible to teach our children about Internet safety - parents, teachers, society.

Yes! Internet became part of school life as well.

Absolutely. (and for katearmen: "It doesn't matter. Kids won't listen either way.", then why bother providing boundaries for smoking or drinking either? It's a parent's JOB!) It goes hand in hand since kids have internet access at school.

I believe parents are responsible. However, since kids are accessing the internet while at school, online safety must be part of a school's technology curriculum. This is particulary true for students who ONLY access the internet at school.
