I work for a school district, and we are having problems with users accessing innapropriate content via google image search.

- They are turning off the safe search feature, and type a few "porno words" and they get thumbnails of porn. Our web filter (Surfcontrol) doesn't catch these attempts.

I'm looking for a way to FORCE users to keep safe search on - or to phrase that differently, prevent users from being able to turn it off.

Anyone know of a way to do this? I can't simply block google images, as it is frequently used for clipart, etc for student projects.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
