State Schools Superintendent Suellen Reed is launching a $100,000 campaign to increase Internet safety for students and families across the state.
“The Internet is a wonderful educational resource for our students, but we all need to be more aware of the dangers that come with it,” says Reed.
The campaign, titled “The Ten Most Important Things to Know About the Internet,” is sponsored by Bright House Networks.
It includes ten student-generated public service announcements addressing everything from cyber-bullies and Internet predators to viruses and hate web sites.
Reed says more and more kids are using networking sites like myspace and facebook and need to know about the real dangers surrounding them.
