See, it all depends on your usage of the term "need." I do need a cell phone. I literally can't work without one. It's part of my job. Some would argue that since that's the case, they should provide me with one, but that's not how it works.

And sure, schools will have their rules. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be reviewed however. I'm not saying that the school has to blindly follow everything I say. I'm saying that they should look into the rationales for such rules and evaluate them logically and in modern terms rather than just saying "but that's the rule." I'll grant "no calls during class." Fine. But lunch is different. Nothing is gained by no calls during lunch. Possibly you have an issue with kids being late for class. Fine, punish the late kids. But if I'm late for class because I was busy doing my homework at lunch, that's no more excusable than because I was talking to my girlfriend (on the phone or in person).

When I was in high school, we used to play cards at lunch. And we'd get in trouble for it because "no cards in school." To which my basic response was "fuck you." I am required to sit in a room doing nothing but eating for 30 min. Why can't I enjoy myself while I do so?
