Katie Neu takes her high school courses from home. It's been two years since she walked out of her high school after being cyberbullied so much that she felt forced to leave.
Neu, 16, was threatened over instant messaging programs. Her peers called her names in e-mails after rumours about her spread around the school. She received messages and e-mails accusing her of faking a broken arm.
I had enough of people trying to hurt me and harass me," said Neu from her home in Listowel, Ont. I'll probably have to do it myself, but I want to see all forms of bullying illegal."
An announcement from the Canadian Teachers' Federation calling for the addition of cyberbullying to the Criminal Code has brought Neu's hopes one step closer to reality.
