This is quite the can of worms about to be opened. Your post suggests that filtering is a safety and educational decision. To remain safe, we block out that which poses dangers. To remain informed, we allow content of educational value.

To over-simplify, trace back in your organization to the source ultimately responsible for filtering decisions. Is this person or group well-versed and well-schooled in making sound educational decisions?

Is there even a conversation among stakeholders of what to leave in and what to leave out?

CIPA primarily applies to minors. Good judgment applies to everyone else. How well are we upholding that? And how well are we teaching Internet Safety to kids who generally go home to unfiltered environments?
