Students and Teachers React to New Policies for Cell Phones, Hallways

by Abigail Hart, ’19

When the students of ELHS came back to school this fall, they were met with strict new school policies regarding phone usage and hall passes. 

When interviewed, student reactions to the policy changes were fairly similar. Students believe that the new policy is efficient but there are parts that need to be amended because they are, ironically, creating further distraction. Senior Avery Goulding said that the cell phone policy–not using phones during classes or in the halls–is a great idea, but the policy could be altered. “When I am required to keep my phone away, I just think about how I want to be on my phone, which is actually more distracting,” she said. “They should just let me take out my phone if I want to. The policy causes more work than it’s worth.”

United Nations: Sustainable Development Goals

By Avery Goulding, ’19

On September 25th, 2015, the countries involved in the United Sustainable Development initiative adopted a set of goals directed at ending poverty, reducing inequalities, increasing gender equality, and 14 other objectives. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals web site lists the 17 aspirational “Global Goals.”

One goal of interest to students would be goal four, labeled “quality education.” According to its description, “Goal four ensures inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.” Looking at the option ‘Goal 4 Targets,’ it states a priority to build and upgrade educational facilities that are child, disability and gender sensitive and provide safe, nonviolent, inclusive and effective learning environments for all.

The United Nations works in partners with UNICEF, UNESCO, UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), and UNFPA (United Nations Fund for Population Activities), sharing specifically the concept of creating a safer environment for children primarily in more ‘conflict affected areas’ in order for these kids to learn safely and correctly.
