Tim Stahmer ponders the shabby state of many school Web sites, and finds a common culprit: the outdated concept that puts one staffer in a gatekeeper role rather than letting individual educators post things at will.

Many of the tech trainers we work with in the schools have been handed this job ("other duties as assigned"), what our overly large school system calls "web curator". It’s actually a very appropriate title since many school, and central office, sites are updated as often as most museums.
