Submission + - UK Schools will "Fight Cyberbullying"

Plutonite writes: The BBC is running a story on UK schools reportedly being told to fight what they call "cyberbullying", or bullying with the aid of (network-based)technology. They have been told to confiscate mobile phones, and — slightly more controversial — to investigate and get material removed from personal social-networking sites. Are schools supposed to be doing this as an extension of their duty to prevent physical bullying in school, or is this is yet another example of governmental intervention where it is not due? Should British youth be brought up knowing that their life on the web is being documented and controlled by people other than their parents?
