on lifting the school cell phone ban in the January 15th issue were right on.
Mayor Bill de Blasio's dumb decision will save taxpayers billions of dollars because the Department of Education will have to close all city schools once kids bring their "hell" phones to class.
There's no reason to keep them open since students will learn “app”-solutely nothing. Ring tones will replace math, reading, writing and reality in classrooms.
Students will be too busy sexting, texting, tweeting, cyberbullying and running up huge online bills; exactly the same things they do when not in school.
De Blasio cited parental concerns for kid safety. If that's true, why do parents give their kids gadgets that make them targets for violent cell phone robbers, sexual predators, scam artists and cyberbullies?
Charles Lindbergh flew 3,000 miles across the Atlantic without a radio. Why do kids just a few miles from home need cell phones?
New York City public school students will get no education starting in March. Smart phones make kids dumb and mayors even dumber.
