Lawmakers to get cyber-bullying help from kids

BROOKLYN - Lawmakers will visit charter schools throughout the city today to get student feedback about how to prevent cyber-bullying.

The discussion is part of an online survey called "Click, Comment and Create Change." It was created in part by Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn) and state Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx) to help create new legislation that would crack down on online harassment.

As part of the survey, students will be asked to define cyber-bullying and share their own experiences.
