I had a personal experience speaking in front of a class at Boca High. I walked away appalled by the degree to which the students were distracted by their cellphones. Only about 10% of the students had the ability to listen – maybe these were the kids with no phones.
If you send your children to school with cellphones, you probably expect that the teachers are equipped to make sure the phones don’t become a problem. I didn’t get that impression.
The impression that I did receive was that the students who did listen, and weren’t distracted by their phones, will be the leaders of their generation.
