Centralized school filtering in Oz

The New South Wales state Education Department is testing a centralized filtering system for its school following the suspension of three students for viewing porn sites on school computers. According to Australian IT, the new filtering system is part of an $84 million plan to tighten Internet security in schools statewide. An Education Department spokesman "said increased security would ensure that inappropriate internet sites were blocked, bad language use stopped, and teachers could monitor chat rooms," Australian IT reports, adding that the system would not necessarily be able to block all overseas-based Web sites. It provides students with their own "electronic learning accounts" and email addresses.
