BL’s New Plan For Phones In the Classroom Draws Support And Criticism

Cellular devices have become a big topic conversation over the past several years.  According to a 2017 study study done by the Pew Research Center, 54 percent of teens ages 13-17 worry that they use their phones too much.  You’ve seen them, walking around campus with their heads down, staring into their screens. Maybe you’re one of them. The fact is, there are students across the country and at BL who are addicted to their phones and can never put them down. In response, the upper school implemented a new policy at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year: every teacher has phone pouches in their room and students have to store their phones there during class.
