Ohio district to relax Internet filter for teachers, students
Beginning this month, an Ohio school district will relax its Internet filters to allow teachers and students easier access to educational material. This is a change from the district's past practice, which took a hard line against sites with potentially objectionable content, including YouTube, anatomy diagrams and retail sites. Under the new practice, high-school students also will, for the first time, have access to social media, but their activities will be monitored. The Columbus Dispatch (Ohio) (9/14)
