My Class' Wiki Has Been Blocked By the Board

My grade 12 class' wiki has been blocked by the school board. So the students cannot access it from any of the school's computers. The reason given is that it is a free site, and, therefore, its content cannot be controlled.

I am constantly checking what the kids post via Bloglines.

Frank, don't let that stop you! Have them do their work from home. Build a body of outstanding student work and showcase it to your admin. Build support with your admin and get them on side. Then encourage them to advocate for you with the higher ups. This shortsighted decision by your school board can only be th result of ignorance. It's bit of an uphill battle but if you educate them, eventually, they'll come around.

For what it's worth I'm in your corner. ;-)
