Massachusetts and every other state now have laws that require schools to take action to prevent what’s called cyberbullying, which takes place online rather than face to face. But cyberbullying remains a difficult concept to understand for both teachers and parents, who can also have trouble identifying the signs of bullying or behaviors that can lead to bullying.

Englander joined WBUR's Morning Edition to discuss her new book, Bullying and Cyberbullying: What Every Educator Needs To Know.
