"Drs. Hinduja and Patchin answer questions about cyberbullying that we all have. As an educator and a parent, I appreciate the candor and informative nature of their book. I feel my home and school benefit from the topics we can now discuss to make our battle better prepared." -- Frank Rudnesky, Principal "Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard is one of the most honest books I have read about the realities of childhood bullying and cyberbullying. I am recommending it to all my colleagues at my school for a book study. It should be required reading for anyone involved in educating children." -- Donna Eurich, Middle School Teacher "The original text has become the seminal and authoritative text on the topic of cyber-bullying. I am confident that the second edition will continue to be an essential resource for school districts, administrators, educators, parents, and policymakers." -- Jude A. Huntz, Chancellor "The authors of have written the manual on how to recognize, prevent, and respond to cyberbullying.

This book offers the answers educators and parents have been looking for when it comes to cyberbullying!" -- Jolene Dockstader, 7th Grade Language Arts Teacher "Sameer Hinduja and Justin Patchin seemlessly weave the latest research with riveting examples from the frontlines of cyberbullying. This is the definitive work on cyberbullying, rich with practical tools for teachers, school personnel, parents, and students to prevent and respond to cyberbullying." -- Suzanne W. Peck, President/Author "In a society that is grappling with the ramifications of the rapid pace of technological advancement, cyberbullying has emerged as a serious issue in education. This book provides real-life scenarios, timely data, and best practices to help school leaders protect the children and adolescents in their schools. All educators will find these resources useful in detecting and preventing cyberbullying and ensuring the safety of students." -- Gail Connelly, Executive Director "This is an excellent resource that clears up much of the confusion and sometimes hysteria generated in the media on cyberbullying. It provides prudent and do-able strategies from crafting policies, to investigating and responding to incidents. Most importantly, it provides the right mindset and philosophy for helping schools prevent the problem in the first place and for empowering all members of the school community to work together. Policymakers, administrators, teachers, parents, and students would all benefit from the knowledge contained in this book." -- Jim Dillon, Author of No Place for Bullying
