It’s seems appropriate (seeing that I am in Australia) that I mention news that the Australian state of Victoria has banned YouTube in its schools.

Victoria, Australia’s second most populous state, has banned the popular video-sharing site from its 1,600 government schools after a gang of male school students videotaped their degrading assault on a 17-year-old girl on the outskirts of the state capital of Melbourne.

It seems to me, they should have banned YouTube in schools anyway – it’s hardly a resource school kids need to access, is it?

“Kids, today, we’re going to learn about the evolution of dance. You will be tested!”

  • I’m sure there’s lots of educational content on there somewhere!

  • Wikipedia seems to be the most complete resource for learning material. Yes Andy, I know you’re kind of hating them due to the no follow links, but gotta hand it to them… they still have good info on almost everything out there!

    YouTube shouldn’t be allowed in schools and public libraries. I agee with you on that.
