The company I work for are always fiddling around with the websense filters - at one stage I could not access Irish Rail Gen from work as it was deemed to fall in the category "adult content"! (Dirty old engines perhaps?). We were barred from from Fotopic (online pictures) for a long time but that is OK for now, though I suspect if too many people spend too much time on there it will be blocked again.
I cannot comment how schools view internet access for their students or how essential it is seen to be as an aid to study, is there a means to put in a request to be allowed access to a particular site?
In my case here I would just have to shut up and put up as having internet access at work is a perk, not a right of the job.
