At least three out of four public school teachers have little to no
recent training on Internet safety, according to a new study.
And while more than 90 percent of school administrators believe
cybersecurity education is crucial, just over one-third of surveyed
officials said their schools even offered such classes as part of their
curricula, the study continues.
Both numbers are part of the newly released State of K-12 Cyberethics,
Cybersafety and Cybersecurity Curriculum in the U.S. poll, commissioned
by the National Cyber Security Alliance and Microsoft, and conducted by
Together, the data suggest a dire need for comprehensive Internet
security and ethics education in public school classrooms nationwide,
pollsters and experts said.
