S 715: Establishes commission to study effects on adolescents of smart phone and social media usage in school

S 715 (Codey) This bill creates a commission that will look at smart phones and the usage of social media on adolescents. Social media has both good and bad effects. Social media is filled with misinformation and disinformation; the news is filled with stories of cyberbullying and viral videos from TikTok. As social media grows, it is important to look at how it affects young adults physically, emotionally, and socially, and solutions schools can use to limit the impact on youth.

NJEA supports S 715 and encourages you to do the same.
