This week's E-School News carried an article about controversy in NYC over the school district's enforcement of an existing ban on cell phones in school buildings:

From the article: ...said Rebecca Falik, a 16-year-old junior at LaGuardia High School. "...It's your right to have a cell phone." A sentiment repeated by the parents interviewed for the piece.

I think these people are a little fuzzy on what constitutes a "right".
