Squelching Our Voice

One of my serious concerns about using this type of media is: will our access be denied within the district?  The technology folk have already banned, or filtered, youtube, facebook, flickr, and who knows what else.  I have had multiple legitimate educational needs to use these websites at school.  I feel I am not the only one who feels the district’s filter is too encompassing and strict.  What will they filter next?  Blogging?  I can totally understand filtering student machines of certain websites to keep focus, but if I was hired because I am trusted with over 100 kids under my supervision, certainly I can be trusted with the internet too, eh?  This has been a frustration of mine for several years within the district.
