Some Libraries Still Using Filters

from the good-or-bad? dept

Despite the recent ruling that libraries don’t need to use filters on their computers to keep receiving federal money, some libraries are planning to keep filtering content. Recently I’ve seen more and more people suggest a fairly straightforward solution: why not just have filters on some computers which children use, and leave the rest open for adults to use? I’ll admit there are problems with this solution too, but perhaps it clears up some of the more major issues. In the end, I still think it’s a parenting issue. Parents need to teach their kids what’s out there in the world (online and off) and how to deal with it.
