Educators in K-12 schools are fearful of Internet sites. What are they concerned about? Primarily sites that are unfit for students of this age. In overcoming this inhibition, though, they often have to overcome the district’s technology standards. Again, these are in place for the protection of young minds.

Note the Websites that many schools do not let through the filters.
