Ontario’s Premier says hand-held devices can and should be used as educational tools, creating a fresh debate over cellphones in the classroom and potential headaches for teachers who have been fighting to keep their students’ attention.I'm not sure I follow Premier McSlippery's logic here.
Neophyte's primary school was equipped, at no small expense, with "Smartboards"... essentially a computer hookup to the internet... controlled by the teacher... that could be projected onto a large screen.
Now Dalton wants to just let kids surf the intertoobs with their Crackberrys during class?
What could possibly go awry there, huh?

"Or as my wife says: "So, he's going to pay their cell phone bills?"
