First off, I remember a time when cellphones were only for adults...
When kids started carrying them around, it was excusable... what with after-school clubs and sports.
When kids in elementary school started carrying them, it just got ridiculous.
Anyways, back on topic...
Some schools have already set up rules for cellphone-uses. If they have not, I would say it's free-game until then.
The fact of the matter isn't the cellphone, it would be how aware the school is to what it can be used as...
My old school got rid of cellphones when they realized that kids could text faster than they could talk, allowing them to cheat within a second in a test.
Should there be a cellphone rule? Well, I would say it's like taking away papers and pencils for this generation, but that's just crazy.
You can take away cellphones, but it's not gonna' stop anyone from A) Using them B) Finding another way to do something "unethical".
To take away one right just makes the "wrong-doers" more intelligent and figure out a more crafty way to do something...
Take my old school for instance... they took out a certain high-leveled-programming-class because it encouraged hacking. Sure, it got rid of 70% of the threat of hacking, but now the few who still hack have learned to go through every security code in the school and can change anything they want... the school constantly has to double the pay of their "tech support" to figure a way to block that from happening... but just like a virus, it'll keep changing.
So whatever the choice is, it still won't be the "safest"... especially since "jocks" are starting to become more friendly to "nerds".
What does that have to do with anything?
The popular crowds now have access to things that only the "smart-lonley-types" had during the early 90s... mixing the idea of "Irresponsibility" with "Power" and turning it into a more dangerous afterthought.
........okay, that's all I wanted to say. :P
