    Maybe you youngsters would know the answer to this. About what percentage do you think high school students have cell phones and take them to school?

    Thanks,

    75% at least. Almost everyone in my high school had one, and that was over 4 years ago.

    The answer is really going to depend on how affluent the area in question is. In more affluent / middle to upper middle class suburbs you will easily see 80-90% of high school kids with a cell phone. Even at the less affluent ones id still say most students have cell phones. I was late to get mine living in a middle class suburb and I still had one by 10th grade.

    Very good to hear. That will be very good for my idea.
    I guess I find it surprising only because I didn't get a cell phone until I was getting married. But that was 6 years ago.

    Everyone in my high school had a cell phone, but I went to a private school so that probably had something to do with it.

    I'd say the majority do though. Parents worry about them getting jumped on the bus and whatnot :p

    Parents are so silly these days...many actually drive their turds to the bus stop...middle school kids, not 1st graders!!

    But I found that the private schools were the one's with enough discipline to prohibit cellphones in class. It's the public social circus system that allows these snotfaced kids to take calls and text during class.

    When I was in school pagers started gaining popularity and any kid that had one usually had it confiscated. Nowadays public schools are nothing but social playgrounds.
