Update: Easy porn access at #OCSB schools . #ottnews

This blog was contacted by three parents at opposite ends of town (Kanata and Orleans) on the weekend to say that they have found easy access to porn both on school-owned Chromebooks and also personal devices (OCSB promotes BYOD to children of all ages https://sites.google.com/a/ocsb.ca/ocsb-digital-citizenship/home-1

The found porn was page after page of graphic images of the most vile nature (some are of illegal acts in Canada).

Fortuitously, this blog has finally been contacted by two mainstream media organizations and we were able to provide all the info needed to do stories. No longer will the Board be able to claim that porn only gets through once in a while. If they ever believed this is an interesting question to ponder.

I predict that the Board will now spin it to be that they have teacher supervision of students and Digital Citizenship talks

How can a teacher supervise students when they do work in the hallways or library or during recess in the yard?

Also, there appears to be NOTHING in their Digital Citizenship talks about not viewing porn. It is all about keeping yourself “safe” (not divulging personal info/photos) and not cyberbullying. However, the Board seems to be relying on 12yo boys to not view porn after having a Digital Citizenship talk. Because that strategy works so well..

Mardi de Kemp, spokesperson for the OCSB, told LifeSiteNews that the board has “two types of strong filter systems to keep ahead of changes on the internet and block any sites that do not maintain the dignity of all persons.”

When pressed about the specific systems that are in place, de Kemp responded: “I hope you can understand – it is not in the best interest of our students’/system’s online safety to clarify the specific details to the public, but, to filter access to unwanted sites or searches, we use two strong filter mechanisms: one is an external world-class filtering application/security company we subscribe to and the other is a customized internal process we manage.”

But de Kemp admitted to the Ottawa Citizen that restricted content can find its way through the filter.

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