School boards all across the country are banning websites with inappropriate content.  In theory this seems like a great idea, protecting impressionable minds from violence, pornography, other adult content.  Once in practice the software that is used to protect students, turns out to be blocking such pages as Google and National Geographic.

Also on the list of bans are social media sites.  This is to restrict the personal interaction between student and teacher.  Hot Wings has the low down on what is wrong with this situation.
