The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) released the 2010 State of Cyberethics, Cybersafety, and Cybersecurity Curriculum in the U.S., a report which looks at the state of cyberethics, cybersafety, and cybersecurity training in the nation's schools.
The study polled teachers, school administrators, and technology coordinators. It indicates that the youth in the US aren't receiving enough instruction on how to use technology and to navigate the cyber world in a safe and responsible manner. Despite the lack of past study, most of those polled strongly agreed that these topics should be taught in schools.
"The study illuminates that there is no cohesive effort to provide young people the education they need to safely and securely navigate the digital age and prepare them as digital citizens and employees," said Michael Kaiser, Executive Director of the National Cyber Security Alliance.
