Today’s post, “Does Technology Have a Place in Our Schools” is over at parentsociety.com. Wanna see what you’re in for? Of course you do!!!!
“When my daughter started 9th grade last September, her high school had a pretty strict policy on the use of technology. It was actually a “zero tolerance” policy. If a student was caught operating any kind of technology (phone, iPod, etc.) on school property during school hours, the student had to relinquish the tech to the school and the student’s parents had to come to school to sign it back out into the student’s possession. During 9th grade orientation, the principal was adamant about this policy. No ifs, ands or buts, as the saying goes.”
