Hi Group:

Next week I will be part of a panel debating useage of the Internet.  As
a library media specialist who believe in the Library Bill of Rights, I
will be debating free access of the Interet.

I think that it is our goal as library media specialists to teach
students (and parents) that with internet use comes a responsibility to
understand it can be abused.  Students must be taught that if they get
into something "questionable" on the Internet, they should know that, on
school equipment, to back out and try somewhere else.
No one wants our computers used to harm a"nyone or to find
"objectionable materials."  Also what is objectionable" to some may not
be to others.

Just some random thoughts as I begin to prepare my presentation.

What do you think?
Shoud we have rewalls or can we trust our students with proper training
