Missouri Mother Convinces School District to Block Website

WILLARD, Mo. (AP) – A southwest Missouri woman who found her
daughter using a social networking site that allows users to talk
anonymously to strangers convinced her daughter’s school district
to block the site.
The creator of the site, Omegle, says he thinks the Willard school district overreacted.   But Kandra Armstrong, mother of a Willard High School junior,
says it is dangerous to allow teenagers onto a site that lets them
talk to anyone by text or video.
Stephanie Kiesewetter, assistant principal at the high school, agreed with Armstrong and had the site blocked. She says Omegle was getting past a filter that stops students from giving out personal information over the Internet unless the district authorizes it.  The Springfield News-Leader reports that the site also is blocked on computers at Springfield Public Schools.
