Jon,  I know you were looking for some tools  to have the discussion with
your principal.

This site has not been updated in a bit, but still relevant and may prove
helpful to your cause since it  is filled with LOTS of great information
http://balancedfiltering.org/
It's not just about filtering.. but offers perspectives on other issues in
the companion site:
http://unmaskdigitaltruth.pbworks.com/w/page/7254095/FrontPage
Like Item No 6 on the page:  Control
<http://unmaskdigitaltruth.pbworks.com/control> - Educational leaders
sometimes want to limit potential user behavior

Hopefully there is something there that may be helpful to you

Lucie
