What you want them to do this publically on Link?

I wouldn't have any problem with filtering stuff for schools at the state or
even federal level or organisations for that matter.  Though I suspect the
filtering options may vary between education systems. There is a duty of care
and I wouldn't like to be in a teacher's shoes.

By the way a few years ago, I was told that the concern in schools seemed to be
about email and I would guess chat room conversations for girls and web
content/pornography for boys...
