This thread/poll was inspired in a way by a few posts made in the Site Announcements forum among other places about schools limiting access to the internet, specifically certain pages.

To be honest, I'm kind of neutral to the whole subject, but just wondering how you felt? I thought this forum would be a great place to place just a poll... you can vote for more than one if you wish!

I think it should be limited (to ensure security of the equipment that the provider is responsible for) but not censored for content. The ONLY effect content filter is a deny all except list solution anyway.

Well, the title of this thread is 'should internet access be censored or limited in schools?' The problem is, that's not really what the debate is about. It's not about whether access should be censored or limited-it's about passing a law that says what kids can and can't see on the internet while they're in school, and putting people (i.e, school officials) in jail if they violate it-and then create a bigger government bureacracy to enforce it. That's what it's really about-federal control, getting more and more pervasive, over exactly how we live our lives. If an individual school wants to make a policy about that, fine. But to have the federal government tell every school in the country exactly what they can access on the internet, and then put people in jail (don't worry, it'll happen) if they don't comply; it's just more creeping government control over how we live our lives. Screw the government.

I put no, but I think the filter should at least block out porn, because I remember kids in highschool always trying.

i think that certain sites such as myspace should be blocked because kids have the tendencies to check it during school and it wastes peoples time.

I think yes, internet access should be majorly limited at all schools, even universities. Not because I think the government should be doing babysitting for the parents, or censoring what information they see. My kids are homeschooled, I don't believe in letting the government "educate" my children, much less take care of them every day and tell them what to do and how to act. My problem with internet access in schools has more to do with the underlying issues like children seeing advertisements on websites when they are so very impressionable. But mostly it's because of all the kiddie porn being spread around by people using university or other public computers, one case in particular, right here in my hometown, a man I used to know very well.

I think the use of school computers should be limited to only research, the sorts of things we used to have to do with periodical indexes and card catalogs.
