What is your school's policy on allowing kids to bring in their personal electronics, such as Nintendo DS and iPads?
My son's elementary school allows it, and I have a huge issue with that. The kids have to leave the items in their backpacks - which are in lockers in the hallway and out of their sight for most of the day - and are only allowed to use them at the end of the day. My concern is they are easy to steal when they are out of sight like that, and it is tempting for other kids to do bad things with someone else's stuff. Our son is upset with us because we won't let him take his Kindle to school. He keeps saying "but the teacher allows it." Great, we don't.
Personally, I don't think they should be allowed at all. They are a distraction, IMO.
What is your school's policy and how do you feel about allowing electronics at school?
