UK education secretary to call for ban on 'video bullying'
 
 

Alan Johnson, the UK education secretary, will make a speech today asking YouTube and other online outlets to ban videos that insult or in any other way promote bullying against a specific individual or group.

"Cyber-bullying is cruel and relentless, able to follow a child beyond the school gates and into their homes," it says in his prepared remarks. He goes on to say this also applies to teachers, who are often victims of student-led slander and defamation.Going for the kill, he writes, "I am therefore calling on the providers of these sites to take firmer action to block or remove offensive school videos, in the same way that they have commendably cut pornographic content. By removing the platform, we'll blunt the appeal."

Johnson will make his speech today in front of the National Union of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers conference in Belfast.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
