    Schools Blocking Websites?

    A couple months ago, my school magazine let out an article about schools blocking websites due to various reasons. So far my school blocks Myspace, LiveJournal, hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, Vibe, Newgrounds, Gmail, Xanga, Playboy, Miniclip Games, Ebaumsworld, KKK-related, IGN, and Gamespot.


    If you can't think of what to say on the matter, some starter questions ^.^ :

    Do you believe schools have the right to block websites from students?

    At some places students are not allowed to access email acounts while teachers are. Do you find this kind of rule fair?

    Does your school block out websites? Describe the kinds of sites they've banned.What kind of response has come about to these? (yours and other peoples')

    What kinds of websites do you feel shouldn't be under such bans? Why?

    I'll answer after a few people respond

    i think its a pretty smart idea myself blicking porn site like playboy ,and off topic places that aren't school oriented it keeps the kids focused on school stuff.
    my self when i was in school the computer had just been made and only certain schools used them. so i had a frist hand exeperince in the with computer.
    of course there wernt as fast or as good as the ones today though.
    we only hade apple tandy's and texas instruments with format disk's with little dot's and stuff. oh umm yea back to your problem the school are doing the right thing by blocking some sites from kids. though i agree kids should be aloowed certian pages for educational stuff like CNN.com or something along those lines
    but the idea of kids neding to surf the web when they should be doing school work is silly im sorry to say . but this is just my thought

    well, with certain software and knowledge of my teachers' passwords it really doesn't affect me at all.

    i log in as the headmaster instead of a student.

    psssh, its like madetory for a school to have protective software.,
    if its gaming or chat(which even forums are counted) are not allowed to be accessed at school because, well you gotta study end of arguement .

    but most of the time i think the school boards do it out of spite, while they're there working hours on end on assignments, there we are having fun., how could they not get jealous??,

    Schools should block certain sites. The schools budget pays for and maintains the computers and if blocking sites is the only way to prevent viruses and weird downloads by stupid kids then so be it. If kids want to look at something that's blocked at school...then they should use their computer at home

    And made arrangements heaven knows..
