The largest teachers union in Canada, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO), has passed a resolution requiring that cellphones in classrooms be turned off.
The message behind the EFTO ruling; it's time to protect school-age children and teachers by turning off cell phones during school time. This is no small move for the 76,000 elementary teachers from Ontario who make up the ETFO.
Echoing the concerns of her coworkers, teacher Sandra Wash, who spoke at the meeting, said, "There is cause for concern for members' health and safety, especially women."
