The blocking of any site is an offence to the freedom of information act most countries uphold.

This specific is not about law or moral (not unlike how a friend of yours could prohibit you from browsing p0rn on his computers for example). It all falls down to that actually. Your net, you decide how people will use it (the reason for educational establishements is that they take responsibility for what is done with their infrastructure. Not unlike how ISPs can be blamed for not specifically curbing movie downloading on their fiber line nets)

I suggest creation of a separate thread specifically about it, if a discussion seems desirable.

it is law when it restricts content that is not safe or suitable to students, if the restrictions are not there then the parent has the legal right to sue (well at least in australia, dont know in other countries)

the parent has no legal right to do anything. all content is protected via freedom of information, even porn. preventing access is attempting to avert one law using another.

If we keep thinking like this, we'll be able to kill people legally.

Squall the blocking of sites is protection, not for the user of the connection but for the owner of it.

Afterall you don't want to have a lawsuit filed against you just because someone else downloaded copyrighted material on your connection for instance.

laws are not black and white, may be freedom of information act or whatever but does not mean they all must listen to it. just like our own government still has a crap load of top secret stuff they refuse to let the public know about, face it thats fact. a school can block whatever they deem they need to and there is nothing you can do about it, especially if under age.

you walk into a school and you fall under THEIR rules, if i could remember exact wording i would quote you word for word on exactly what i was told by a teacher, but its been a bit to long for me to do that atm. so a school DOES have every right to block any websites they need to, so that they can keep students off sites with material not appropriate for the school or to keep students off sites that can cause disruptions while in class.

should try reading the booklets some schools hand out every year, they clearly state what the rules are and what you can and can not do and not following said rules can get you into trouble even if some rules go against the laws you claim we have, because while in schools those laws sometimes do not apply.
