Are we talking about high schools? Yes, of course they should have firewalls. Kids are stupid and will access **** that they know they shouldn't.
If we're talking about universities, then no.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
BTW, we could always called you "Sirrah."
Yes, but whoever is handling IT at most schools needs to take a little more 'hands on' approach. I know when I was in school it was quite difficult to do research for papers or anything on the school computers because frequently sites would be blocked that shouldn't have been (biology sites were frequently blocked, due to descriptions of human sex organs or sexual reproduction).
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
