the #1 mission of social media is to turn children into addicted dunces. it’s already worked for 1/2 the adult population.

Glad that my kids were already grown before smart phones appeared - what a dilemma for parents! A friend brought her toddler over recently - just over two years old and already crying for the phone. It is an addiction and should be taken as seriously as addiction to gambling or drugs - except that it begins at such a younger age.

Should have been banned years ago

Phones for schoolchildren are important so their parents can communicate with them. How many mass shootings in schools have there been? When children enter the classroom the rule is phones off or airplane mode.

If a shooter enters a school an instant alert can be sent to all the phones.

Phones for schoolchildren are important so their parents can communicate with them. How many mass shootings in schools have there been? When children enter the classroom the rule is phones off or airplane mode.

If a shooter enters a school an instant alert can be sent to all the phones.

There is no way to enforce that phones stay off or in airplane mode. Taking them when in sight at any time works, though, at least a little bit.

I'm sure most schools have a PA system to get messages out and teachers can keep their phones for the active shooter situation.

Seems reasonable that phones not be used during class. How to achieve that goal is the question.

ChatGPT should be renamed CheatGPT.
