Scottish teachers move to ban cam phones

Scotland's second largest teaching union is advising that camera phones be banned from schools. The request cites possibilities of childen cheating on exams and paedophiles taking pictures of children. Both of the examples sound unfounded: * The only adults available to take pictures of kids at school would be school staffers. If you can't trust a school staff member with a camera, they should not be at the school. Period. * Camera phones have low resolutions and small screens. Not the best gizmo to cheat with. What ever happened to note cards or graphing calculators?
