good…but its just as important to change the atmosphere in schools so kids feel ok seeking help through these websites. I sure as hell wouldnt have risked being seen on one in school!
Well. That’s good of them. Shame they did it in the first place.
Good point! just because they are available doesn’t mean they will be used in a school environment.
About time too!
Here’s hoping the rest will follow.
I’m not clear what blocking mechanisms will remain in place. There are sites on the internet I would not want a 12-y-o to see. I’m also not clear how unrestricted are students’ access to the school computers. Students being students, they will probably seek the most risque sites they can or blunder onto them. But blocking access to sites like gay straight alliance networks, Stonewall and its equivalent elsewhere, gay health sites is rightly lifted.
