Dory Devlin at Yahoo relates what public schools in New York City had to go through regarding cell phone policies. At first all cell phones were banned but the local school board, after parent complaints, changed the policy to allow students to bring the phone to and from school but not use it at school. After some easing of restrictions after the Columbine incident, cell phone restrictions are increasing after incidents of cheating or bullying using cell phone cameras or text messaging.
