I just got finished reading over Emma's Student/Parent Handbook for the Public School System. Did you know that they have an entire section of the handbook for Electronic Communication Devices, a.k.a Cell Phones?! It is on page 6 of a 34 page document, so they must mean business. I am just shocked by this. I graduated not that long ago. 14 years ago to be exact. Wow, maybe it was actually a bit longer than I would like to admit. But anyway, you can get suspended for violation of the cell phone policy. This was not an issue when I was in high school 14 short years ago. Of course my first cell phone looked like this:
Oh how technology changes. It so was not cool to carry this little puppy around at school. I mean, you couldn't. It had to stay plugged into your Yugo just to keep power. But now, they have phones that are smaller than the palm of your hand, and it can play all your music, watch music videos/movies, hold pictures, take pictures, etc! Amazing huh? I am afraid of what will be around when my girls are in high school. Scary. Is there anything that just amazes you that exist today but wasn't around, or very different, from your high school days?
