There was no need for them in school. It was a "want".

So..schools "bent the knee" to the parents.

Don't quite a few of the posters on here expect just that?

And just what do you expect the school to do? Suspend 20 or 30 kids a day? Get real.

No they take away the phones. Then $5 to get them back from the office at the end of the day.
That's what they were doing when I was in the school system.

Is that what you did ?

MS was bad but HS was much worse. I'd go down to the office with 4-5 phones per class period.

Perhaps capital punishment for parents?

Yes, never-ending...every single day.

I don't make the rules so ....I saw the foolishness of the rules they tried to invoke.

I'm curious what happened if/when someone refused to pay the $5 to get their phones back Sounds like a potential slippery slope of legal hell for the school.

I agree. Or, what if the phone is lost?

As if kid’s didn’t spend enough time playing video games at home, cell phones allow them to keep playing those games right in the classroom.

Yippee!

Like they have those little baskets on restaurant tables for people to deposit their phones to encourage conversation? Put a real BIG one in the principal's office. Parents can call the school in an emergency (not for a Door Dash order). No guns, knives, or phones allowed. Problem solved.
