Center for Arizona Policy is deeply committed to protecting the family and creating awareness about the harms of pornography. Over the years we’ve worked to pass legislation to protect children from exposure to online pornography, like the 2012 law that required public schools and libraries to have online filters. Our friends at the Arizona Family Council have been a tremendous ally to expose the harms of porn.
As a parent, you want to know that when your child is in school they are being kept safe while using technology.
Recently Arizona Family Council drafted a survey for a sampling of school districts in Maricopa County. Each school district was issued a grade based on how well they keep their students safe while using technologies on campus.
The questions on the survey ranged from student age to internet usage, filters and monitoring software, and any policies districts have for “bring your own technology” programs in their schools.
Following the study, Arizona Family Council awarded Glendale Elementary School District a $2,500 grant and the 2013 “Smart and Safe Technology Award” for their forward-thinking approach with technology use and safety measures for students.
Arizona Family council is also presenting the conference Families Fighting Pornography. Attendees will learn more about how to better protect their families from online pornography. The event is on Saturday, November 2, 2013. Tickets are $10 for early registration and $15 at the door.
