Schools to keep a check on online predators

Amidst fears of children being vulnerable to online bullying and other pitfalls on social media, schools across the State will now have to pay special attention to cybersecurity and ensure that their students are taught about the safe use of technology.

Social networking sites should be blocked at all times in schools, and sites containing adult content need to be restricted.
