The teachers' union NASUWT has released a report highlighting the extent that teachers suffer at the expense of pupils who resort to cyber bullying techniques.
Chris Keates is the General Secretary of the union and has been tweeting the highlights:
NASUWT survey :Teachers have been issued with death threats/accused of crimes including paedophilia and rape on social media sites #nasuwt12
Although 64% of teachers reported cyberbullying many felt not supported properly or complaint was not taken seriously enough #nasuwt12
Two of the UK's biggest teaching unions have voted for further industrial action, including strikes, over pensions, pay and job losses.
The two main teaching unions are considering more strike action as they hold their conferences this weekend.
