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.
