New York lifts years-long ban on cellphones in public schools

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 01:47

A boy attends class at his elementary schoolBy Laila Kearney NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City's 1.1 million public school students were allowed for the first time in years to take their cellphones to school on Monday, when a controversial ban on them was lifted. Mayor Bill de Blasio said in January that he would seek to end the ban, which was imposed under his predecessor, Michael Bloomberg, and was in effect since at least 2006. "I think it's way past time for this ban to be lifted," said Mona Davids, who heads the New York City Parents Union. Davids and other parents have complained that New York's old policy endangered students by making it difficult for them to call for help in emergency situations and to connect with their parents before and after school.

White House task force calls for increased oversight of police

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 01:43
By Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A White House-commissioned task force released a report on Monday recommending increased oversight of local police forces in response to what President Barack Obama has described as "simmering distrust" between police and communities they serve. The task force called for police to report on the racial demographics of their departments and the citizens they stop, be more open to civilian scrutiny and seek consent before a search. Obama charged the group of law enforcement officials, academics and advocates with reviewing policing practices after nationwide demonstrations protesting a grand jury's decision not to indict a white Ferguson, Missouri police officer for last summer's fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager. The Justice Department's investigations into the officer, Darren Wilson, and the Ferguson Police Department are expected to conclude soon.
