Harassment in school: the removal of abandoned Facebook profiles

A guide to the "procedures for dealing with cases of harassment between students on the Internet" and a "national information campaign" this fall: the plan to fight against harassment at school, presented on Wednesday by the Cabinet, provides many educational activities, but no longer mentions the removal of Facebook profiles of the perpetrators of bullying on the Internet.

These measures had already been announced by the Minister of National Education, Luc Chatel, at a conference on bullying in early April. On this occasion, the Minister also announced that the Facebook accounts of students harassing their classmates or their teachers in line would be closed, in partnership with the social network.

He had cautiously denied the existence of an agreement, saying the other hand "ready to work on the subject" Harassment and improve its system for reporting abuse.
