Alisha, I am wondering what your interest is.

As a parent and a person involved in education, I take the position that students can have PDAs and cell phones with them during the school day, but that they may not make or recieve calls or messages during class time, including the time between classes. Before school, lunch, and after school is different. The punishment or consequence for violating that rule would be immediate confiscation of the phone for a week.

PDAs are widely used as "minature computers" in schools (instead of laptops). I don't know--new technology, new ways to cheat.

Cheating is cheating.

I just read an article about children cheating as well that was intriguing at http://blogs.dailycents.com/?p=819 talking about children cheating more now than ever before. It is really informative so check it out!

Just a suggestion, to avoid students from cheating using their cellphones, why don't teachers confiscate their students' phones before giving them exams? That way, students won't be able to use it on cheating.
