I have a chromebook from my school too. It uses (and almost every school uses) lightspeed system (a.k.a. a way to torture children). This is a app that makes can block and monitor any kind of websites they want. It blocks anything the school wants to have blocked for instance: games, social networks, video sharing sites and more. Its like hell. Me as a student: I find this disrespectful to the students because first of all they monitor every single move and eliminating the students capability of doing somethings online. Also some kids at my school this is their only good source of technology eliminating there access to social networking.

When a school does this it shows signs of disrespect, no trust and in my opinion no signs of any good capability of respect towards the students and the parents. This is a shame that any school has to use this way of making sure that the kids don't do anything ¨wrong¨. I think schools should have a talk with the kids about not F***ing up anything on the computer rather than banning a ton of websites.

Also to your question how to fix this I don't know. BUT if you find out please send me a message!!

Experience tells me that kids wreak and misuse anything given to them unless that use is controlled. Especially electronic equipment.

Giving a student a PC is an expensive investment not a toy or a useful addition to th families computing hardware and software.

Buy your own - then allow your child to "play" with it unsupervised to see how long it lasts.

You know the thing is it depends on how trust worthy and how old the kid is. Of courses no kid should have a computer when they are 9 but if the kid gets used to the computer slowly a really actually knows how to uses a computer well and efficiently than they should be able to have a computer. But the problom is there is always the 10% of kids that dont know how to use the computer well and they are kids that are causing all the truble.

As a teacher teaching 11 to 18 year old students I accept that some are responsible and trustworthy, but the ratio is by far biased towards the ones who will mess up anything that isn't bolted down.

I other schools I taught in parents SOLD the tablets given to their kids and claimed they were lost or stolen (we insisted they had insurance to cover the device) but eventually had to withdraw them for school use only.

I have had kids try to steal workshop tools and even 1 who tried to remove a fire brick from the workshop (just to see if he could)

First, a very important thing for you to understand--- If you didn't buy it, or acquire it in some other legal way, it is not yours and you are restricted to use it only in a manner that the owner allows. As an example, suppose you work for a company that provides you a car for use while you are working for them. It does not mean that you can take the car on your vacation, unless the company allows it. You can only use the car in the way the company policy says. It is not yours to do anything you want. The same applies to computers. The US Census Bureau often supplies notebook computers for its field rep. The computers are very restricted and using it for your own desires will get you terminated. You are not even allowed to connect on line with them because of the confidentiality of the people who are cases and the remote possibility that it could be compromised . If it is not yours, you have no right to complain about restrictions on it. It is a very simple concept. It doesn't matter if the security software can be over ridden or turned off. It's not allowed by the owner and you have to comply with that if you use the computer for yourself. Something else to remember is that anything you put on the computer may be accessed by the owner and used against you if need be. I was always amazed to see teachers use their school computers to write resumes and apply for jobs with other schools all the while thinking they had privacy and that nobody would know what they did. If it is on a school computer it belongs to the school and they can use it against you if they want to.

Aww, come on, guys, help the poor soul out.

It's a simple fix. All you need to do to bypass the administrator's security is to take a standard USB cable and cut it in half. Strip the wires and tin (solder) them to make each wire stiffer. Plug the non-stripped side into the computer's USB port and place the other wires into the wall outlet closest to you.

You're welcome.
