As a teacher yourself like my sister and two of my Aunts, first I take it you teach in a public school system?
And if so cell phones like I said should be in a back pack at all times, if they are taken out in your class you have the rite to confiscate it do you not?
So you chose not to do so, because and I will answer this for you, your scared yourself of getting beaten and or raped or worse. So don’t blame cell phones on your lack of ability to teach.
When in truth the reason you cant teach the way you may have the heart to is because your stuck to a program that is laid out by the testing board yes made up of teachers, but who are no longer in the classroom setting. Public school system is a joke.

Here's another perspective:
Mass emails going out to peers with regards to drug deals, when and where. Originating from dealer at a particular high school and sent to peers at other high schools including the Alternative high schools. During in-school session (class time)... What are the school's rights and responsibilities?
True story, happened at the school I teach at.
