The Columbia School Board decided to allow the use of cell phones in schools. Christine King, president of the Columbia Public School Board of education, said this policy will help students access school material through their phones.
“We want to provide the technology of online instruction through a variety of ways to students. In order for them to use their iPhone, for example, to look up whatever it is they need to do for a class, we have to allow them to bring that into school,” said King.
