Freedom of information and open discussion are the keys to disarming bad ideas
June 12, 2014 (Newswire) - The recent tragedies associated with the fictional character, Slender Man, serve to refuel the misguided flames of censorship and Internet filtering in public education. The urgent desire to prevent access to inappropriate and potentially damaging material, such as Slender Man, triggers tighter firewalls and filtering more content. Sergeant Laboratories builds solutions to reduce reliance upon firewalls and enable the open and frank discussions that replace bad ideas with better ones.
Alfred Griswald famously stated, "In the long run of history, the censor and inquisitor have always lost. The only weapon against bad ideas is better ideas." Griswald's sentiment still rings true today, and is the underlying theme of AristotleInsight::K12
Our nation's educators are the champions of open information and discussion. Our teachers strive to continually increase student's access to information and empower them to openly discuss new ideas. By enabling meaningful discussion about what students see and do online, educators support the next generation of safe, responsible, and enlightened digital citizens. Sergeant Laboratories is proud that AristotleInsight::K12 supports our educators quest. America's teachers are the frontline defense against fear and hate, and the promoters of enlightenment. We believe support for our educators is support for our future.
