New Web Site Helps Schools Decide How to Manage Internet Content

Do internet filters really protect students from being exposed to pornography, or do they just offer schools a false sense of security? Are acceptable-use policies enough to protect schools from legal action if a student downloads inappropriate material from the web? A new web site called "Safeguarding the Wired Schoolhouse" addresses these questions and more. The initiative is designed to help school leaders understand their technological options for managing the content that students access over the internet.
