Los Angeles district partners with Microsoft to use Bing search engine

Aug. 23, 2013
Students will be able to conduct ad-free web searches at school using the Bing search engine.

Students and staff in the Los Angeles Unified School District can now use Microsoft's Bing search engine without having to see ads or adult-content links in their search results. The Los Angeles Times says the partnership between Microsoft's Bing search unit and several major school districts is aimed at providing students a safer experience online while drawing more users to Microsoft's search engine instead of Google.
