China blocks Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, and more ahead of Tiananmen Anniversary

(Posted by ElyssaD on

We have a long standing practice of institutionlized silencing in public education. Through curriculum design, reading selections, or library catalogs for quite some time.

Recently, our local governenment upped the stakes. Tennessee schools decided to block certain websites especially those that were seen as having information or content that was perceived as gay, lesbian, or bisexual.

Silencing of any type can be harmful and cruel. Imposing formal censorship threatens our individual freedoms and democracy everywhere.

Let the children speak, let them learn, and let them be hear
