High Schools Ban Blogging

It has come to this. School Administrators have banned
blogging
from school computers citing a lack of educational purpose as a deciding factor. However, the principle stated that it is more of a parental concern than a school concern.

I will leave you with this thought: Are students allowed to access e-mail at school? This definitely serves an education purpose. I did a bulk of my communication with professors via e-mail. (I did not even have an e-mail account until I went to college.)

If they are allowed access to e-mail, I believe they should be allowed access to their blog.

But, if you are using WordPress or Blogger, just e-mail your post to your site and avoid the whole hassle.

The next thing you know the UN will want to regulate the internet. No, wait, that already happened.

    It’s definitely a double standard. If they allow one thing such as general browsing or e-mail, they should allow blogging. I do agree that a good number of activities students do while at school are not educationally stimulating, and if they’re going to do something about it, take out those actions, not something like this.
