Research specifies that there are certain approaches how schools addressed the victims of cyber bullying. One study revealed that among the selected ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) member countries, only the Philippines have a cyber bullying law that explicitly addresses the students by ordering the involvement of schools to make policies, rules and regulations regarding the issue under Republic Act 10627. They conducted a qualitative research through a discourse analysis of cyber bullying laws and alternative strategies addressing said concern; and literature review of online journals, publications, and news articles (Ruiz, 2019). Another study declared that given the difficulty schools face in preventing or even detecting cyber bullying, health care providers are an important ally, due to their knowledge of the youth, the sense of trust they bring to youth, and their independence from the school setting (Vaillancourt et al., 2016). Moreover, a study reported that most of the students feel pleasant on cyber bullying as the university administration officers continuously drives information awareness campaign that decreases fear and unpleasant emotion among the high school students (Vargas et al., 2017). Thus, all the mediums schools have had used upon this study cultivates substantial results.
