The school that I am working at has a no tolerance policy towards cell phones/headphones during class as well as homeroom. If I see any, I take them and send them to the office. I love this policy because I basically have no issues with cell phones. I've probably confiscated only about 6-7 cell phones this whole year. There was one instance when a kid didn't give it to me, so I called admin, and our VP took the phone. I did a few demo lessons in other schools yesterday and I was shocked by what the kids were allowed to do. One of the demos was great and the kids were really well behaved. (I loved this school and would take the job if offered!) However, in another demo, there were 4 boys with headphones (the little ones) in their ears. I thought the VP would tell them to take it out but no one seemed to care. The school had a uniform and 3/4 of the class was not even in uniform. In a different school, there were 3 girls with headphones in and cell phones on their desk and again, no one said anything. Is this normal?
