This is an update to our original post here.

Just two weeks after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed lawsuits against Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools and Knox County Schools, the school districts have agreed to remove a ban on LGBT web sites in its classrooms.

Previously blocked websites included GLSEN, PFLAG - and also GLAAD's.  Access to so-called "ex-gay" sites were not included in the school district’s original ban.

The block is said to have been removed on Tuesday, though students do not return to classrooms until the summer session begins this coming Monday at which time the new software will be tested.
