Colorado Library Media Programs Mirror Nation’s Schools on Internet Access for Students

According to Nua Internet Surveys, a recent study by Quality Education Data (QED) found that 39 percent of U.S. schools that provide students access to the Internet use filtering software and 80 percent have some kind of acceptable use policy in force.

Similar data on school library media programs in Colorado for 1998 indicate that 32 percent of LMCs that provide access to the  World Wide Web filter some or all of their terminals and that 82 percent have policies specifying the conditions under which students can use the Internet.
