Welcome to BalancedFiltering.org

We need balanced content filtering in our schools, and specifically in our U.S. public schools. BALANCED filtering is content filtering which recognizes multiple needs:
  1. The need for US public schools receiving federal ERate dollars to comply with provisions of CIPA and other laws.
  2. The need to provide accountable online environments in our schools.
  3. The need to equip students to make responsible, ethical decisions in online as well as face-to-face situations.

Resources and suggested action plans related to advocacy in your local community for "balanced content filtering" will be added here in upcoming months. Current resources include:

  1. Unmasking the Digital Truth: A collaborative document providing background and information about various reasons some school districts choose NOT to utilize a balanced approach toward Internet content filtering
