Prince George’s County Public Schools will be the latest district to take legal action against the social media companies behind Instagram, TikTok and other apps arguing they are contributing to a youth mental health crisis and should be held accountable. The county’s board of education decided Thursday night to move forward with retaining legal representation. Several school systems, including Seattle Public Schools in January, have filed suit against the social media companies, and school districts in California, Pennsylvania and Florida have joined.
