School bans Blogs

Weblogg-ed – The Read/Write Web in the Classroom :
I’ve just found this reference in one of Steven Downes’ OLdaily emails. It seems that a school has banned students from accessing MySpace.com – a blogging site. While the headteacher does point out that there are privacy concerns, if students write freely online, the statement

blogging is not an educational use of computers.
has lead to quite a bit of discussion – as one might expect.
