Should a parent's right to block his or her child from using the Internet at school trump the school district's desire to show students how to use an important educational tool?
As noted in today's article, Wake is leaning more on providing access to the Internet. Wake doesn't completely ban Internet access from students whose parents have filed a "Parental Request to Deny Access Form."
Wake's position is that the parent is only denying unfettered personal access. School officials say all students can use the Internet if a teacher or administrator is using it as part of a supervised activity.
