"A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Cyber-Victimization and Educational Outcomes for Adolescents"
Virtual bullying can do real damage to students' educational and social progress, according to a new meta-analysis of research in the journal Review of Educational Research.
Across a dozen high-quality studies in different disciplines, researchers at Vanderbilt University found that for adolescents ages 12 to 17, being a victim of cyber-bullying was associated with lower academic achievement and higher absenteeism. Moreover, cyber-bullying was associated with significant problems for students regardless of gender, race, or age.
