Unblock Our School
We are responsible for our own selves. We are responsible for our grades and schoolwork. We are also responsible for what we choose to do during school hours. We have come here to learn. We choose how we will learn. We choose whether we will pay attention or not. Blocking websites will NOT change our choices. Blocking websites has proven to only cause more chaos. If, in the middle of class, we decide that we want to go on Twitter (for example), we are going to do whatever we can to access Twitter. If it is not blocked, then we might occasionally go on it and browse around, not necessarily giving it our full attention. However, if it IS blocked, then we will be more likely to pay more attention to accessing the site. We are young women. We know how (and when) to multitask. When one task demands more attention, that's what we will do. We have run into so many cases in which we have actually been required to go to certain sites or search for certain terms and we are not able to access all the resources we need to fully complete the assignment. If we choose to pay attention and get good grades, then we should have the right to do as such. If we choose to mostly pay attention and get decent grades, then we should have the right to do as such. If we choose to not pay attention and get inadequate grades, then we should have the right to do as such. Our education is up to us. Regardless, we are still paying to go to this fine school. But we are not paying to have limited resources.
