[LINK] Survey Finds Support for School Filters (USA)
Mon, 23 Oct 2000 01:05:16 +1000
I've just been informed by the staff of my son's school that the
students have been accessing pornography sites from the school PCs
despite the censorware, and in fact the students have added some to
the 'favourites' bookmarks on some of the school PCs.
So the censorware used by the NSW Dept of Education clearly does not
achieve its objective. If the students at my local high school can
beat the censorware, its it likely that students at other NSW schools
I now doubt the effectiveness of censorware used by other state
education departments, which by and large I suspect use similar
products/solutions to the NSW Dept of Education.
