I undersatnd that you old folks didn't have cellphones in your day ...But HELLO ITS 2009!!! This is the generation of technology!!! Students use their phones to have emergency contact with their parents and or guardian. Things happen inside of school that students need to inform their parents about. This protest is normal and shows our opinon about something that concerns us. JUST 2 LET YOU ALL KNOW WE CAN STILL SPREAD THE NEWS OF A PRANK WITHOUT A CELL PHONE...SO what is taking our phones gonna do?? All its going to do is make us mad!! This protest shows that we are angry and we want this changed as soon as possible!!! NOT HAVING CELLPHONES IS VIOLATING YOUR SAFTEY!!!

Kids do not need cell phones while they are in school. If someone needs to get in touch with them due to medical needs, they can call the main office to get in touch with their child. This is what people used to have to do.

It isn't just Wilson that this should be the rule - it's ALL schools. I don't care what year it is, you do NOT need your cell phone with you when you are supposed to be LEARNING.

The kids of this generation are very scary. Our future - huh?! What I want to know is how the majority of them are probably on welfare, but have enough money for cell phones! Robbing the system or what?!
You Dont Know Whether or not we are on welfare once again you people who dont know are talking out of the side of you necks and you need to be quiet until you have people financial records you are just wrong and ignorant to say something like that ... makes us wonder about the people (adults) who we learn from ? so as you are laughing i hope your 401K depletes and maybe you can get on welfare (how you like them apples?)

Hey Some Wilson Student - looks like you ALL need to learn the respect. How come you aren't learning right now instead of on the computer typing "BS"? Like someone else said, you kids should be worried about programs cut, loss of teaching jobs, etc. NOT the temporary loss of a cell phone for a few hours. Grow up! I rest my case!

This comment is very rude and judgemental. You are
assumming that all students who attend Wilson use
drugs. That is not the case. We have very bright and intelligent young people at Wilson. Please don't judge the students at Wilson by misconceptions sometimes generated from the media or students who feel like the have right to protest. I don't believe they should have cell phones at school but I know that we have some of the best and brightest students in Monroe county and they don't abuse drugs.

Well I also attend Wilson and I think that these pranks were outrageous and annoying. We were all running around the school like it was an amusement park when we are suppose to be here learning. And if were going to protest do it for a good cause not just because your friends are doing it. The school never had a problem with cell phones there just not supposed to be used inappropiately. And why are so many people are so quick to jump on Wilson jump on the suburbian schools that are bringin 38 guns in their schools and raping each other and killing themselves its more things to comment on than something this little even though its wrong and I THINK IT WAS ALL SILLY AND THE CHILDREN WHO PARTICIPATED WERE SILLY THIS WAS NOT ALL OF WILSON JUST THE IMMATURE HALF OF US!!!!!!!

Hey teachers - from the looks of the writing content the kids have posted, you've got a LONG way to go before these kids can even remotely begin to speak properly and write properly.

I am going to ask you one last time. Why do you prey on stories about inner-city stories? You redneck! Wilso is a nice school...matter of fact, it was rated as one of the best in the country. Just because it is in the city does not mean the students are drug dealers. Try telling the white people to stop buying from these "dealers" I never see you post on stories about whites when they do crime......and they commit too!

I think its wrong to take people electronics for no reason and have other people suffer for what other people did at wilson.

Hockey Lover is an ugly redneck racist who prey on urban stories. We are talking about cell phone use, and this fool is making the students to be drug dealers. He lives in a cave and does not have any friends, so he attacks urban life at any which way he can.

First of all thats not even the kids that go 2 wilson problem thats more of a government issue.We cant help that we are losing jobs , program cuts, etc. Not to say that the protest was right but cell phones are sometimes needed....all across the U.S. problems like this goes on. If you ask me you guys all need to grow up!!!!!!! The comments that you are writting about kids isnt making it any better. Most of the people that are commenting are adults that instead of sitting here talking about people on an issue like this need to be ashamed. The surbian schools are the ones where all the deaths, suicides are happening.Thats what yall need to worry about! NEWS FLASH

THIS SCHOOL JUST EMBARRASSED ALL OF THE INTELLIGENT KIDS!!! Next time think before something like this happens Wilson's going to go out in shame because of this ignorance. We don't need cell phones LEARN SOMETHING AND GRADUATE!!

The students say it's a safety issue to be without their cell phones?! What's wrong with these kids? They are our future?? Scary. Most adults didn't have cell phones when we were in high school and amazingly, we survived!!!!!! Give us a break.
Only a handful of wilson students said that it was a safety hazard so they could have something to feed the press and a reason to keep their cellphones and other devices. Do not base your theories of the whole school because of these students because you are not right.
