Reviews - What do customers think about Access Denied: How Internet Filters Impact Student Learning in High Schools?
Solid research on a timely topic -- a must for every library Nov 28, 2006
Enjoyably readable depiction of high school students' research restraints -- compounded by do-good (but know-nothing) technology administrators who promote fear (and loathing) in lieu of ready access to crucial information. Makes you wonder when we're going to collectively grow up. Answer: when more people read and understand this compelling and concise examination of what they're (not) teaching our kids.
