    No because of the emergency situations mentioned. In many of those school shooting incidents you have heard about in the news, word got out to emergency personel via student and teacher cell phones.

    The other issues is that teachers should be monitoring their classes for cell phone use. In my day, eagle eyed teachers could spot a kid chewing gum from twenty yards away and very rarely were notes successfully passed.

    Why spend the money on expensive tecnology when the live "meatware" is available in each classroom?

    no, because if the student has to be called in an emergency or call their parents, who only answer if the person shows up on their caller id

    Such a device would be illegal. The FCC requires that all devices that transmit or receive radio signals must meet their requirements.
    The cell phone jammer would be illegal.
    If you find one, let me know, I would install it im may car so that it would be jamming anytime the motor is running.
    Philosophically speaking, schools should have the power to minimize distractions. So, if they could jam the cell phones, I think it should be allowed.
    Cell phone use is way out of control. Cell phones should be regulated so that abusers who can’t use them responsibly would have their service suspended.

    This type of jammer is not illegal. There are a lot of resturants that use them. I thnk schools should use them. If there is a problem then the administration needs to be aware of it so that legal issues can be followed. and not just have a kid say that they need to go home,etc. While you are in school they are legally responsible for you. That is one of the reasons why most schools limit access into the building during school hours.
