I think there taking the totally wrong approach.  If someone says don't look, your natural reaction is to look.  Had they of not said anything you wouldn't look.

 

My personal recommendation is to bring in the parents at school, holding over two evening sessions and basically sit them down in a big hall to watch a presentation on how to block porn on their PC's, then it's up to the parents then.

This is correct, in my opinion.  It should be the parents responsibility to protect their children, not leave it up to schools.  But I think they realize that many parents are not that engaged.

they could try to explain the computer safety side of it, like don't go to porn/pirate/whatever sites because you could get a 'bad program' like a virus/trojan/etc...

 

instead of "don't look because it's naughty"

This is what I was thinking--have an open discussion with both the parents and students in attendance: here's how to protect yourself and the computer, here's what can happen, etc. Just like the sex talk itself--if people are going to do it they at least should know how to do it safely and which ones to avoid and etc.
