Murphy, Kane to push for student access to sites

-->

HARTFORD — U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy and state Sen. Rob Kane are urging Connecticut school officials to allow students full access to political websites.

Murphy, a Democrat, recently sent a letter to the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education asking members to encourage local school boards to “provide students with access to the materials necessary for developing informed opinions.”

Murphy and Kane, a Republican, have supported a Woodbury student who raised questions about why his high school’s computer firewall blocked him from accessing conservative websites, such as www.ctgop.org and gun rights groups.

The two politicians were scheduled to appear Monday at a state Capitol news conference to discuss the importance of providing students access to diverse political thought. They will be joined by several students.
