AN INTERNET filter installed by the NSW education department gave students access to pornographic material - but blocked educational sites.

One site a Year 10 student opened while searching for a type of bird contained graphic sexual material and was only barred on Monday after inquiries from The Daily Telegraph.

George Cochrane said his school-aged son and daughter, who study by distance education from their farm in Grenfell, were horrified by the sites they could access.

Other educational sites and harmless web pages for the local member of parliament - and even Education Minister Verity Firth's own site - have been blocked by the filter.

The Department of Education and Training confirmed that the filter would be used on thousands of laptops for high school students. It is also currently used on all computers in schools.

Pwned!

how about they stop deciding for an entire country what people are fit to see?
That would eliminate many headaches I think!

That's how all internet filters should work!

Just block all education in case someone starts thinking on his/her own!!

Why would you want education having access to porn?

This is why they should just punish kids that do get at it. I'm sorry, but it's a terrible idea to even bother trying to filter the content. The filters such and generally block more legitimate content than anything else.

It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

Hahaha, we have one here, OCN is blocked for us because I kept logging on during I.T, of course, since it's apparently not educational.

Granted, I've learnt more about computers off here than from my I.T teacher, a LOT more.
