(Shillington) -- An eastern Pennsylvania school district says it has adjusted its Internet filtering software so that it no longer blocks content about gays.
The group said the Berks County district's "sexuality'' filter prevented the student from accessing sites that expressed support for the gay-rights movement. An "intolerance'' filter blocked a range of political advocacy sites, including ones that oppose legal protections for gays.
John Stott is the district's solicitor. He tells the Reading Eagle that the district has now disabled those filters following the ACLU's complaint.
The ACLU says it is encouraged by the district's decision.
