Censorship in SchoolsMany schools have policies of restricting website access on their network. Most of them have explicit content / rich media that consumes large amount of bandwidth. Some schools even restrict access to social media sites and oneclick filehosters like mediafire/rapidhsare/depositefiles, esp., sites / networks that might land them in trouble if you use such sites. Using webproxies can shield them as the responsibility shifts from them to the web proxies.
The Tor NetworkApart from Public proxy servers, web proxy servers and VPN's there is an opensource project called the TOR network for protecting you privacy. Tor network tunnels your internet traffic through chain of nodes. When you use the tor network you ip is not known to the target webserver. But researchers have found way to unwind these hidden ips if you use bittorent clients on the network. So if you use tor for only http / web browsing you ip and privacy are protected to a graeat deal. Tor encrypts all the traffic from your computer till the exit node. All of your traffic seems to originate from the exit node hence making it hard for traffic analyzers and censors to track you ip address.
Censorship In CountriesLike in U.S.A / Europe, anonymity is not always gauaranteed by law. In some countries like China, Burma and Korea, all citizens are exntensively monitored and internet freedom is next to nil. Almost all middle east countries apply some sort of censorship like banning ips / website domains. This type of censorship is quite common. You can use web proxies to beat such censorship.
