School and Law Officials Talk Internet Safety

A mix of experts in law, education, and social media contributed to a discussion about the pitfalls of cyberspace at San Marcos High School last Friday morning. Organized by the AAPLE (Accelerated Academic Program for Leadership and Enrichment) Academy, State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, Facebook’s Krista Kobeski, Deputy District Attorney Sanford Horowitz, and UCSB professor and school psychologist Shane Jimerson spoke about Internet precautions and potential repercussions of online conduct. “We can pass all sorts of laws,” Sen. Jackson said to the students, explaining there are many currently moving through state legislatures, “but the real power in this is you.”
