Have School’s Taken Phone Use Policy Too Far?
There is a new trend spreading among school’s, teachers have taken confiscating phones to a new level. It’s common now for school’s to not only confiscate phones being used during class but also charge parents a fee to get them back. Without saying parents have expressed dislike and school’s have been pulling in unprecedented amounts of cash. One school, Steele High School, has managed to rake in over 16,000 dollars by charging parents 15$ to get their kid’s phones back. Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District alone has collected over 33,000 dollars since they began implementing this new phone policy.
The School’s Have Good Reason To Have Strict Phone Use Rules
Maybe charging parents to get their kid’s phones back is a step too far but the school’s have a good reason for wanting to limit phone use in school. Studies have repeatedly shown that less phone use in school means higher grades and more focus on the class lesson’s. Grades rose by as much as a whole letter grade when phones where confiscated on school campus. So what is a parent to do to avoid unnecessary charges and give their kids incentive not to use their phone in school?
