California high school found students' cellphones too distracting, so they're locking the devices up
from NBC News
It wasn't enough to just tell students at San Mateo High School to put their phones away during class, now, officials at the California school have told them to lock them away. And while their familiar companions may still be near, the high-schoolers are now required to keep their devices in a magnetically sealed pouch during school hours. Mounting frustration over student attentiveness led administrators at the school, which is about 20 miles south of San Francisco, to institute the new policy this school year, which kicked off earlier this month.
