A student says school technology policies are outdated, and that if teachers trusted students they could better use technology in the classroom. In this opinion piece, the Pennsylvania high-school student calls for less regulation of technology such as computers and cell phones at school and argues for teachers to have more autonomy in determining what tools are appropriate for student use. "There is a middle ground between 'zero tolerance' policies and unlimited access. Successful schools will find it," he writes.
