To create a "drop box":
I will assume that the students all belong to a group named "students" 
and the teacher's username name is coojo

1)  mkdir /home/dropbox
2) chown coojo:students /home/dropbox
3)  chmod 730 /home/dropbox

Have the students save their work to this folder using a unique 
identifier for each student.  (For example: smithsa-p23 could be the 
assignment on page 23 for the student with username smithsa.

As for the pornographic web site, install DansGuardian, either on your 
K12LTSP box or on a firewall that the K12LTSP box goes through.
