MORAL DEVELOPMENT THEORY AND BULLYING
Bullying has been a problem for as long as adolescents have had to navigate the social landscape. In the past, however, bullying could be confined to confrontations within the school day. Now, with social media, texting, and email, bullying extends outside of the school space. It can be pervasive, multimodal, and even anonymous, with the potential to â€œgo viral.â€ What does this mean for adolescents, for their sense of self and their moral development?
