The Daily Pulse:

LGBT Websites Unblocked At Schools

The ACLU says it hasn't gotten the word yet, but according to Lola Alapo in the Knoxville News Sentinel, Knox County Schools has now taken care of the issue of certain lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) education websites that were being filtered on school computers, when anti-gay sites and those urging homosexuals to overcome their orientation were still allowed. The ACLU filed suit against KCS and others May 19. Fulton High rising sophomore Bryanna Shelton was recently featured in Metro Pulse regarding her role as a plaintiff in the suit, and received the news as a sort of birthday present--she turned 16 June 3, the same day School Superintendent Jim McIntyre announced that the existing filtering software had violated school system policy and had been altered. By 11 a.m. this morning, Alapo's story about the filtering had received 75 comments on the paper's website.
