ACLU demands LGBT website access for TN students

Pete Chagnon and Jody Brown - OneNewsNow

The ACLU is threatening the Knox County, Tennessee, school system with a lawsuit if it does not meet their web demands.

The American Civil Liberties Union is demanding that the school system unblock "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender" websites by April 29, 2009, or face a lawsuit. The ACLU claims the filtering software employed by Knox County -- which is provided by Education Networks of America -- blocks students from viewing nonsexual websites that host content they consider protected free speech.
