    Probably a good idea, although I'm not sure how they can enforce this.

      Maybe just using signal jammers in each classroom would suffice. But then the teachers are out of luck as well.

        Are those legal? In the Netherlands they're not, I believe, because it would suck to have a shooting or a seizure and not be able to call the police/ambulance/superheroes

          Well if the head honcho had an on/off switch,that would work,or an old fashioned land line.

      Here in the US before phones were everywhere most schools had rules against electronics and how they handled it was to have parents sign a form at the beginning of the year understanding that the use of said items on school grounds would result in the item being taken from the student and returned only to the parent, our school had a three strikes policy on the third strike they would hold the item until the end of school year.

      Today I guess parents would bitch about this though because little Jimmy doesn't need to follow rules.

      Edit: Changed " they blew up" to "phones were everywhere."

    Well I don't think this is necessary...Mobile phones at this age has turned to a resource avenue. What I feel is needed is re-orientation.

      As far as I know there have been a few attempts to try to integrate phones into the learning process, and none of them helped. E.g. this article. I think it would be theoretically possible but I can see how a school would rather just ban them than wait for teachers/science/the world to figure it out.
