  • brueckj23 feels
    students need to have a voice in deciding where their learning should go and teachers should find a way to relate that back to the standards

    I agree with all of the above. Also, schools need to stop thinking that blocking sites will keep them from having to teach net safety.

    would love to see more knowledgable students mentoring others like many other educators help me! :-D
