A new Illinois bill that went into effect on Jan. 1 gives school boards and administrators the power to suspend or expel a student if that student threatens a school employee, another student, or any school-related personnel on the Internet via social networking websites or other web-based tools.
"Bullying no longer takes place only at school," says state Rep. Dwight Kay, the sponsor of the bill. "This bill gives school boards and administrators a way to deal with online threats from students towards other students, faculty or anyone else."
