No Cell Phones In School!

    I know this is kind of old, but nonetheless, it is post-worthy:

    There are some places that strictly enforce rules in school:
    A teenage girl in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 90 lashes and two months in prison for taking a cell phone to school, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

    The 13-year-old's punishment, harsher than that given to some robbers and looters, requires her to be flogged in front of her classmates, the Daily Mail quoted Saudi newspaper Al-Watan.

    She was reportedly hiding a cell phone in class, breaking strict Saudi regulations banning their use in girls' schools.

    WOW!!!  Here, you just get it taken away and you get it back at the end of the day.  I am not saying we need to do 90 lashes here, but we do need to get tougher.
