School Ban of Mobile Phones Down Under

aussieflag.jpgThere is a new call for a banning of mobile phones at schools in Australia. Not because of fears of cheating or excessive gabbing, but rather because students are using the phones to film their own mini-versions of “Romper Stomper.” In New South Wales government schools filed 25 reports of police regarding incidents involving video-equipped mobile handsets over a six-month period.

Some of these incidents, which include were captured on mobile phones and include segments of bullying and sexual assaults have been posted online on sites such as YouTube. Thus far the NSW government has rejected a call for a total ban.
