We know that parents need to flex more muscle so students can focus on learning, not the damage caused by social networking. So, it is inspiring to read about a middle school principal who urges them to do just that. His email to families is gutsy. Let’s wish them all success in reorienting students to real world (here and now) socializing and real learning in school.
