Yahoo News had a story about states that have started Internet Safety education.  In Virginia public schools are mandated to provide Internet safety courses to all grade levels.

Finally! They are talking to the kids not just the parents, which is a situation I’ve questioned before.

But still not mentioned is instruction in ‘good’ uses of the web, e.g. Web Literacy.
