Students Wrecking Students

A recent Washington Post story details some very disturbing behavior among law students at some of the nation's best schools.  The students' actions parallel those of lower school cyber-bullies and can be every bit as damaging, if not more so, for the targets of the attacks.  As ASP professionals, we should be alert to this sort of behavior  it would be foolish of us to think this sort of thing cannot be happening in our own schools.  Given our positions, we are likely to stumble across it when trying to discover what may be at the root of a student's poor academic performance.  It is not difficult to imagine how devastating it would be for a student to find herself the target of such attacks.
