Editorial Reviews


"Amidst the hysteria surrounding cyberbullying and sexting, Hinduja and Patchin represent a sane, sensible voice that helps us all better understand these phenomena and what is really happening here. This book is filled with useful information and practical tips for those who seek to create positive school climates where bullying of all kinds is minimized. Every educator should buy it and read it.” (Kevin Jennings, Former Assistant Deputy Secretary of Education for Safe and Drug Free Schools 2012-01-10)

“It is critical that educators, school administrators, parents, and technology companies work together to promote positive behavior – online and off. This practical guide provides important information, backed up by careful research, about the ways that adults can help build constructive dialogues and relationships with students.” (Joe Sullivan, Chief Security Officer 2011-12-21)

“Working with schools around the country, I know firsthand how much pressure there is to find an “answer” to bullying in schools, whether because of recent laws mandating programs and training or the community demanding answers. It’s hard to know what resource is best. It’s especially confusing because a bullying-prevention industry has bloomed to take advantage of this need but so many of these programs lack content based on a realistic analysis. I’m not at all surprised that Justin Patchin and Sameer Hinduja have created the resource all schools should use in School Climate 2.0, either to meet the new legal requirements or truly do the hard and comprehensive work of creating a culture of dignity in a school. From understanding the true dynamics of cyberbullying, to outlining a commonsense strategic plan for educators that will work with their individual community, School Climate 2.0 to my mind is really the most important resource currently available. I will more than strongly advise every school I work with to use this book. Say it this way: if I could make School Climate 2.0 mandatory reading for every school administrator in the country, I would.” (Rosalind Wiseman, Author of Queen Bees and Wannabes)

"A rarely seen compendium of school strategies that have worked, School Climate 2.0 moves past the headlines to offer a textured discussion of what we really need to strengthen school culture and improve teens’ and schools’ relationships to social media." (Rachel Simmons, Author of "Odd Girl Out")

"Blaming technology is easy. Addressing the socio-cultural dynamics that shape young people’s lives is hard. Yet, to address hard problems like bullying and sexting, this is precisely what we need to do. In School Climate 2.0 Sameer Hinduja and Justin W. Patchin flesh out the relationship between technologically mediated issues and school climate before offering valuable strategies for educators and community members to address problems in their schools. Both grounded and practical, this is a must-read for all who are scratching their heads about how to prevent bullying and sexting." (Danah Boyd, Senior Researcher)

"Finally, a book that takes a holistic approach to the cyberbullying problem! There is no dividing line between school and home when it comes to the ways members of this generation relate to one another. A positive school climate can only help create a more positive home environment, and vice versa. This book gives readers specific guidance regarding how to prevent cyberbullying, sexting, and other problematic online behaviors." (John Halligan)

"School Climate 2.0 is a wise and practically helpful book. The authors are national leaders in cyberbullying. They present a helpful overview to the problem and most importantly a series of concrete suggestions about how we can make our schools safer, more supportive and engaging. In addition, the book is filled with “voices from the field”, prevention points, discussion questions at the end of the chapter which all serve to make this volume practically helpful to educators. I highly recommend it!" (Jonathan Cohen, President)

"By cutting through all the media hype and speculation, Hinduja and Patchin present an accurate and helpful analysis of issues related to young people’s use of technology. By pointing out that the vast majority of youth are using technology safely and responsibly, they’re able to focus on the real issues, the real problems, and the kids who need our help. By basing their advice on rigorous research, they are able to come up with strategies that are effective and appropriate. I’m especially pleased that the authors focus on social norms and school climate by sharing insights into how the overall climate of a school affects the behavior of everyone in it." (Larry Magid, Technology Journalist and Internet Safety Advocate)

"This is an immensely helpful and well-sourced book. It gives a thorough introduction to adolescents’ use of new technologies and sexting and cyberbullying. It makes a strong case that school climate is a vital factor in regulating these abuses. There are excellent chapters on how practical intervention strategies can be implemented in schools. It will be a great resource for teachers, educators, and parents." (Peter K. Smith, Emeritus Professor)

"While Sameer Hinduja and Justin Patchin have a history of providing leadership in solid research and effective outreach on issues of youth risk in a digital age, in this book they have massively outdone their past excellence. Grounded in the understanding that the majority of young people make good choices online and effectively handle the negative situations that do occur, but that a minority of young people are at higher risk, Hinduja and Patchin craft recommendations for a positive school climate approach to help all young people learn to make good choices and assist their peers." (Nancy Willard)

"Sameer Hinduja and Justin Patchin remind us early on that, contrary to most media hype, most young people use their ubiquitous technologies safety and responsibly the majority of the time. Then, they discuss how a positive school climate is fundamental for all of learning and teaching. They share innovative, pragmatic strategies to enhance climate and thereby foster a better social environment― which will reduce behavioral problems offline and online among youth. This very readable, very user-friendly book should be considered mandatory for all preservice teacher education programs and be used as a guide for planning ongoing inservice training as schools prepare to better meet the needs of their 21st century students." (Mike Donlin, Cyberbullying and Digital Safety Consultant)

"This book shared valuable information about social networks and texting that increased my awareness of their prevalence and potential legal consequences of student misuse." (Carol S. Cash, Assistant Professor 2011-10-28)

"This book will help administrators lead their schools to form and keep policies that reduce or eliminate cyberbullying." (Brigitte Tennis, Headmistress 2011-10-28)

Format: Paperback
*In the spirit of full disclosure, I was honored to have been asked by the authors to provide a small "breakout box" segment, providing insight into the Canadian initiatives being introduced by students who are working to raise awareness of cyberbullying. Truth be told, this is a book I would have gotten no matter what, as you'll see from my review*

I first became familiar with the topic of cyberbullying in doing research for my Masters thesis. In doing so, I referred often to the authors' first book Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying. Reading it from cover to cover, I not only learned about cyberbullying in as comprehensible a fashion as possible, I also learned how to cope with incidents, as well as how to TEACH the subject. Then came Cyberbullying Prevention and Response: Expert Perspectives and once again, from the authors themselves as well as other experts, I learned even more about the topic, why it's important, and how to deal with the behavior.

Having graduated now, I am a Cyberbullying Educator, and more than ever, the topic is crucial to the well-being of our society. This book addresses the link between the school environment and cyberbullying/sexting. That is vital, because with the nature of cyberbullying (more often than not, taking place off school grounds, and not during school hours), many educators ask, "why is this my problem? Why is this an educational problem?" "School Climate 2.0" answers those questions, and more.

Format: Paperback
Hinduja’s and Patchin’s School Climate 2.0 covers two very recent and troubling trends amongst teenagers, cyberbullying and sexting. The authors begin with an overview of both concepts, and each is defined thoroughly, yet the definitions are easy to comprehend and digest. In addition, the text is full of many real life examples, ripped from the headlines, of cyberbullying and sexting incidents that have gone viral and led to serious problems including school shootings, and teen suicide. Hinduja and Patchin showcase empirical research that demonstrates the real frequency of cyberbullying and sexting; perhaps not surprisingly, neither are as a common as media distortions would have us believe. Yet, the authors assert that both are serious problems with very real psychological damage and fallout to be experienced by victims and tormentors alike. The authors use these revelations as a springboard for the discussion of a framework that educators can utilize to improve their school climate and strengthen it against cyberbullying and sexting. However, the book isn’t just for educators. It is filled with countless practical tips, suggestions and prevention strategies that parents should find beneficial as well. The only obvious downfall with a book of this nature is the change of technology. For instance, the book was published in 2012, and contains no reference to SnapChat. SnapChat, in particular, poses a serious problem. While Hinduja and Patchin stress that teens are likely to dismiss the problems of sexting due to lack of forethought, SnapChat seemingly feeds this by enabling photos to be deleted instantly. Of course, the Internet being the Internet, nothing is completely deleted.Read more ›

To say that the book School Climate 2.0, by Dr. Hinduja and Dr. Patchin is phenomenal in creating awareness and sharing knowledge and best practices about this online problem would be an understatement. Cyberbullying is a comparatively new issue across the world. Along with the inventions of communications technology comes great benefits but also great risks that can’t be ignored. Cyberbullying is a topic that needs to be taken seriously. Before a bully would only have power over their victims on occasions where they would physically interact with their victims. With new ways of interacting there comes new ways of hurting others. Texting, social media, and the internet itself were created for a beneficial purpose. Unfortunately, it is now being misused as mediums to hurt others in a way that can affect the victims at all hours of the day. In my honest belief and strongest opinion I believe that this book should be used in the education system to create more awareness to teens themselves and make them realize that social media, texting, and other forms of technology can become dangerous with misuse that can lead to severe consequences. It is never right to bully someone online and it is never right to send explicit photographs of oneself that we would never want other people to see. This book not only informs readers of the dangers of cyberbullying and sexting but it also encourages the reader to take action and fight against these major issues before they become an epidemic. What makes this book stand out is the connection that the authors establish with the readers. Any scholar can become interested in this topic and begin research on it, but when someone who has experienced the phenomenon as a child decides to dedicate their life to educate and help prevent bullying it brings more passion and insight to the topic. This is no ordinary book - it is a must read for everyone who works in schools these days.
