Telling Teacher What to Read and What to Believe
Anonymous Patron writes "This months "From Now On: The Educational Technology Journal" takes a look at filtering in schools: Telling Teacher What to Read and What to Believe. Jamie McKenzie says In some school districts, sites are blocked and filtered if they address important political issues like the federal education law, NCLB.
These filters are not always even handed in their blocking of sites and end up steering both adults and children to read a particular political point of view.
It is fundamentally undemocratic and probably illegal for a school district to determine which political points of view are acceptable and which are not."
