The school board seems pretty relaxed about it – sort of like “oh well, a little lesbian porn”

 

“But de Kemp acknowledged the possibility that restricted content can find its way through a parental filter.

“The way that these search engines tag these photos, once in a while,” she said, “something slips through.””

 

Here: the KW school board basically admits it fixes things AFTER complaints of bad content getting through:

In a previous interview with the Times, school board chief information officer Mark Carbone explained that the school district’s computers operate under a central enterprise-level filtering system which makes upgrades and security changes efficient.

Carbone described the Internet as an “explosion of data”. In the span of 60 seconds, 204 emails are sent on the Internet, 42,000 images are uploaded to Instagram and three million posts are made on Facebook.

He said it’s “impossible to make things perfect” in those conditions.

The board often tests, audits and upgrades its Internet safety technology, assured Carbone, and reviews are done when complaints regarding inappropriate images or sites are received.

The vast majority of calls to his team, however, are from teachers requesting greater Internet access than the district allows, he noted.
