In order to access the Internet at school students at my school need signed permission from a parent.
The districts content blocking software certainly isn't perfect, but it's pretty good. Plus kids only go online under adult supervision. I've never had a parent say no before.
But this year one of my students doesn't have permission. So every time we do something online she can't participate. It's very frustrating to the child. I've been hoping she'd go home and complain and her parents would change their minds, but it doesn't seem like that's going to happen. She's really missing out on some fun activities and learning important skills. It's such a bummer.
Do you allow your child to use the Internet at school?
