Another good reason for not letting kids have cell phones in class

From Business 2.0,
A study by the University of London's Institute of Psychiatry, commissioned by Hewlett-Packard, finds that "an average worker's functioning IQ falls 10 points when distracted by ringing telephones and incoming e-mails ... more than double the four-point drop seen following studies on the impact of smoking marijuana."
So, let me get this straight, it would be better to have a stoned kid nodding off in class than one chained to his/her cellie? And, we all know just how ready to learn and motivated the average toker is.
