School officials in an Illinois district have blocked students from accessing Google after the company made a change, creating an "all or nothing" acceptance policy for its products. Previously, the district had been able to allow students to use the Internet search tool as well as Google Docs, but block access to sites such as YouTube, which is owned by Google. "The changes made by Google render our network filters ineffective in restricting and monitoring Internet activity," Plainfield Community Consolidated District 202 Superintendent Jon Harper said in a statement to teachers.
