ACT Writing Prompts — ACT Practice 20

Your school has recently decided to install a strict internet filter that blocks any websites that have questionable content. The purpose, administrators say, is to protect students from accessing content that would be inappropriate inside of a school. Unfortunately, filters accidently end up blocking some websites that do not have questionable material, too. Many detractors who dislike the policy claim that this internet filter does more harm than good when it comes to blocking internet content and restricting access to websites that could actually be helpful to students. In your opinion, should the school keep the internet filter in place?
