I am a network admin for a library. We do not get Erate funding because it requires ALL computers to be filtered. Adult machines also. We want the adult machines to be not filtered.
It upsets me that schools and libraries that do not even provide internet at all are receiving funding yet we do not because we do not filter everything.
E-rate can also be used for basic telecommunications services like local, long distance, and cellular.
You could think outside the box and have a great (discounted) filtered connection for patron use and a separate gateway for adult users (non-discounted).

This isn't normal funding, this is fraud. Regular theft should also upset you.
Hopefully soon something will happen to this school...
