Tennessee Schools Agree to Unblock LGBT Websites

Two school districts in Tennessee have agreed to change their internet filtering policies.The filters in use blocked student access to websites with information about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender issues, but did not block access to sites promoting "reparative" therapy and "ex-gay" ministries. The ACLU sued on behalf of some students. The case has ended in a settlement, which does not establish a legal precedent. Nonetheless, the school districts have agreed to unblock access to the LGBT sites.
