In today’s society, it is absolutely imperative to censor kids from harmful and inappropriate websites. Even with such an innate need for censorship in today’s society, when does censorship become too much? How should we decipher inappropriate content from education and entertainment?
I truly believe that our school’s blockage of sites is unjust, misunderstood, and sometimes just completely wrong. For example, the website Sporcle is a trivia website, which I have used for many tests. In years prior, there had been no problem with using this website; however, the site is now blocked.
Another reason that our school “blockage” system is unjust can be found in its Youtube policy. Any video not classified as education, music, etc. is struck with in the blocked category, for this video is classified as (blank category). This is an absolutely horrible idea. Channels that are educational but put a comedic spin on learning are banned. Channels such as Oversimplified and Bill Wurtz are banned, for they are classified as comedy and entertainment.
I hope that you have chosen to read my full article, for if we all start speaking about this cruelty, we can most certainly change these unjust rules.
