On Wednesday, School Board Member Tony Norman Announced his plan to ban cell phones for ALL Knox County Students.
In my opinion, it is a safety issue. When the school is placed on lockdown, it is safer for the school and community when students can text their parents to say, I am safe. Otherwise parents will be flooding onto the school property and the school demanding to know about their children. Potentially exposing the parents and students to harm if they are locked down for a threat on campus. Especially a potential active shooter.
What has happened to the Knox County School Board? They are limiting free speech and now potentially endangering students and communities.
