Dear HISD,

The HISD internet filter is a great way to keep kids on task during school hours. It keeps them off of sites they should not be on i.e. Facebook, Netflix, Reddit, etc. However, this filter should not be in effect at home. No student is working constantly at home, needing a filter to keep them on task.

Home is a place to wind down for the day after working hard at school and on homework. The filter is limiting the ability of students to let their minds relax for a while and takes away from the full capabilities of a laptop. These sites are not harmful to the computers as you cannot download and run .exe files or somehow allow a virus into the system. In short, the filter should not be in effect at home.
