This survey was conducted by a filtering company and taken by school administrators and teachers at the annual Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference held in Nashua, New Hampshire in Nov. 2009.
- 66% of the school administrators and teachers surveyed indicated that students know how to bypass their school system’s content-filtering solution
- 56% sense that their current security solution hampers the teaching process.
- 89% consider the Internet is generally safe for students.
While I disagree with the filtering company conclusion that these results mean that better filtering is THE answer, the numbers are interesting. What does it mean when we know something doesn’t work and we keep doing it anyway?
