Spokane Schools Ban Cell Phones

Item: District bars cell phones: Spokane students can carry them, but policy limits use to lunch breaks/Jody Lawrence-Turner, SR

More Info: Spokane Public Schools joined a long list of districts nationwide Wednesday when the school board voted to ban cell-phone use in grades K-12 except during lunch breaks. The policy came after parents, teachers and school administrators expressed concern last year about cell phones disrupting education.

Question: Do you support this action by Spokane Public Schools?
