Well to me that isn't fair and if I were your parents I'd be p*ssed. Too bad if your sister gets caught out one day without a means to contact you or your parents easily. If she is a repeat offender, I understand why the teacher might be getting annoyed but still not a justification for taking a mobile phone away for a week. JMO
Iy may be justifible if it was in the rules of the school
Get a copy of the Cell Phone Policy at the school and review it...if it indeed says the punishment your sister received was correct than tell her to stop texting in class...simple
You guys think you have it bad? My HS (before I graduated) had a no cell phone rule on the entire campus (faculty and staff included)...caught once? Phone gone for a week...caught twice? ISS and Phone gone a month? Caught AGAIN? OSS for a week and Phone gone for another month. If you went to school there you agreed to the rules...we were also searched at the beginning of school and violations were handed out for phones found
Like pparks said...at school the only time a phone is necessary is for an emergency...go to the office and use it
