High School Students' Censorship and the Internet

"The overwhelming popularity of the Internet has brought to light many legal issues. The Internet gives people the ability to communicate with people all over the world, and offers practically limitless access to information. In today's public school systems, the Internet has increasingly become a means for students and teachers alike to enhance their knowledge and develop their communication skills." (3)

Should materials online be censored any differently than materials in print?

Does a high school have the right to regulate what students post online from their home computers?

There has been legal controversy over what is and what is not considered censorship of high school students. My Web site's purpose is to lay down the facts. It is up to you to decided what is more important--a student's First Amendment rights or the rights of a school district's control over student behavior.
