Criticizes Board phone, pager vote



As a teacher in the Richmond County school system, I am offended by the Board of Education's policy banning teachers from carrying pagers and cellular phones in school buildings. This is simply another slap in the face of this profession and echoes the battle we face on a daily basis.

Only in our unrepresented profession would we accept rules intended for children being applied to the adults who try to educate them.
