Re the Jan. 30 article, Cell ban for drivers at schools?: I have been reading about the distraction caused by cell phone use in drop-off and pick-up areas around schools and the danger this poses for children. There has also been talk about children using cell phones during school hours and some cheating on tests using this method.
There is a certain percentage of people that we will never discourage from bad or prohibited behavior voluntarily. We do, however, have the technology to jam cell phone signals and can control this behavior in limited areas and at certain times. To those who would say their rights are being violated I say, it would be a public assistance program to aid them in their adherence to the rules and, therefore, would enhance the rights of students to attend school and learn more safely.
