More than one-third of teachers are bullied online

Over one-quarter of abuse is initiated by parents

by

More than one-third of teachers have been bullied online, according to a new survey from Britain’s Plymouth University, which also showed that while 72 per cent of this abuse came from students, 26 per cent actually came from the parents. Most teachers who claimed they’d been abused online were female, the BBC reports, and a lot of the abuse came from chat on social networks. People also posted videos of teachers on YouTube, abused them on ratemyteacher.com, or set up Facebook groups to mock them.
