Microsoft is expanding a program that gives schools the ability to prevent ads from appearing in search results when they use its Bing search engine. The project, started in a pilot program this year, is now available to all American schools, public or private.

The program is meant to ensure a safer online environment for children while promoting the use of Bing.

Microsoft Corp. is giving away a first-generation Surface tablet computer to schools in which community members sign up to use the ad-supported version of Bing outside of the school.
