I am seeking answers in my own professional circle (teacher librarians) but decided to open this survey up to my network as well. If you are taking the survey from the link provided here, please indicate that in the last open-ended question. Feel free to remain anonymous though. I only strive to keep the data from SC Teacher Librarians separate form blog readers.
Here is the message I sent to my fellow teacher librarians in my state:
Much discussion of late in my network circles center on filters at school. Concerns range from students’ abilities to circumvent them to them being too tight, blocking more than just inappropriate material. While in my recent years I’ve felt when filtered content was blocked, I’ve had an appropriate method to request an opening or unblocking of content, based on these recent conversations, I feel that is not the case for many. I am in a lucky few and minority.
Please take some time to answer these ten questions. My survey is probably neither valid or reliable in terms of measurement standards, but will appease my curiosity.

Thanks in advance for any who decide to participate in my very informal survey. Come to think of it, I probably should have made this a cell-phone texting survey and twittered or plurked it for you all!
