    Do you honestly believe that just because students can't access facebook or myspace or porn they're going to work?
    Those who don't want to learn aren't going to and a firewall simply restricts the ones that do.

    Not being able to access facebook, myspace, or porn does not restrict ANY student from working.

    Agreed, but firewalls also block plenty of useful sites.

    but the ones who would access those things are the ones who will find another thing to do, other than work

    Some, but not all, and certainly not enough for students who want to work to do so.

    Most schools of students that I've worked with have a very different experience.

    Perhaps, but it certainly makes it a lot harder. I just don't think it's worth it to block facebook at the cost of half of potentially useful sites.
    I think someone mentioned this as well, but at my school there's a program that allows teachers to see every student's screen on their computer and I think this is much more useful.

    Actually, the ones that want to work are hardly likely to notice the firewall.
