SPOTLIGHT: N.Y. parents sue to allow cell phones in school

The fight over allowing kids to take their cell phones to school in New York has escalated into a lawsuit filed by parents who see the ban as a violation of their constitutional right to keep their children safe and raise them as they see fit. Eight parents and a city-wide parent association filed suit at the New York State Supreme Court against Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the school's chancellor and the city's education department, arguing the ban interferes with parents' relationships with their children without a compelling education reason to do so. The mayor and school chancellor have maintained that cell phones disrupt the school's learning environment. Article
