Phones should be off during all class times. Phones should be set to vibrate only when they are permitted to be on.

I would suggest a start time for having a cellphone about when you would permit your kid to be home alone for some significant period of time.

Face to face interaction is still important, but so is electronic. If I didn't have the internet, I would have been completely miserable in Qatar.

Dumb rules should not be followed. To teachers who disagree: do you ever speed?

See, I disagree. I think phones should be on. Leave them on vibrate if necessary. Train kids not to make calls. Fine. But if I, the parent, wants to get in touch with my kid RIGHT now because grandma died or whatever, fuck disrupting your class. You can deal with it.

And yeah, I think there is a certainly level of maturity that the kid needs and your guideline is a good one. As an example. I think Jamie is quite responsible, and though I doubt she NEEDS a cell phone at her age, I think she could be trusted with one. Ethan (Steph's nephew, who is the same age as Jamie), no way in hell!
