Province to announce classroom cellphone ban: Canadian Press
None of the kids had them in 1998, which is going to make for a super authentic atmosphere during sex ed class.
This is one of the few times that it’s hard to disagree with Doug Ford on something. You’re a kid. The fate of civilization or the global economy does not rest on somebody being able to send you a poop emoji in the middle of math class. Put the damn phone down and pay attention. Or at the very least find a creative way to be a disruptive pain in the ass like my generation had to.
My only hope is that there will be some flexibility built in for teachers and that none of them are going to get fired because they dared to incorporate phones into a lesson somehow. That’s the sort of stupidity I can’t put past this government.
