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.
