There's a thoughtful article by Larry Magid titled "House Misfires On
Internet Safety" on the CBS News website today - here is a link:

Although the House version of DOPA allows adult-supervised use of commercial
social networking sites for educational purposes, the fear is that school
district officials or technical coordinators will find it easier to just
block them all.  One solution would be to set up our own non-commercial
websites to provide these services to schools in a tightly monitored way,
either at the district or state level.  There is free open-source software
available for all the major social networking services like blogs, wikis,
bookmarking, photo sharing, etc.
