Do you think schools should remove their firewall?
Debate Rounds (3)
First of all, many useful, insightful forums essential for doing reports and debates are blocked due to the fact it may contain adult content. This makes finding insightful websites with genuine information hard to find using the school's network. Making working at school challenging at times.
Secondly, the school already filters what student searches. For instance, multiple searches that involve the word "suicide" will be reported to the police in some other, larger city, they will then report to your school and they will find you. So it doesn't really matter if the students search for adult content because it will just go to the police and the students will get in trouble.
Lastly, students can easily hack into the school and make themselves admin. There is also another, simple way to avoid the firewall. if you download a anonymous web browser that masks your IP address by using layers of encryption. This makes their IP address seem to come from another country.So it doesn't matter if there is a firewall because it can easily be avoided.
That is why I genuinely think that schools should remove their firewall.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct: was good from both. Spelling/grammar: I rarely give points on this, but Con made some spelling and grammatical mistakes. No points. Sources: None. So no points. Arguments: Con didn't even argue! Pro gave a couple of reasons (although I don't agree with them). Con should have rebutted each one of them, but instead claimed that people can watch sites such as porn. Pro argued that the firewall is useless because kids would end up accessing these sites anyway. I don't agree, but Pro wins this debate.
