Kids & High Speed Internet

At a parenting class I attended by the assistant Principal of my daughter's Junior High, I got this nugget.

One of the most dangerous things is a teenager with high speed Internet with no supervision.

Which is why my daughter's computer got moved to a very public space in our house. And we got a Mac that has easy parental controls on it. Yes, my daughter can blame Mr. Carr for this. For parents in the Walnut/Diamond Bar school district if Mr. Carr is still doing the parenting classes, I highly recommend them. He is now the Principal of Walnut's Continuation High School.

A good story in the NY Times Computers at Home: Educational Hope vs. Teenage Reality

This quote is so true:

When devising ways to beat school policing software, students showed an exemplary capacity for self-directed learning. Too bad that capacity didn’t expand in academic directions, too.
