💬 Malcher on Smartphones and Society Replied to The problem is not smartphones in schools. It's that our society is toxic and phones give kids access to that toxicity before they can understand how to navigate it. Banning phones won't solve the problem, only delay it.Ultimately, we as a society, need to be better.— Cameron Malcher (@Capitan_Typo) June 24, 2018 This is such as interesting issue. Society is one perspective, but to think there is also the case of privacy and agency at play. Recommend Adam Greenfield. .
