Student Body started this petition to Hereford High School Administration and

On 11/1/19, Principal Joe Jira of Hereford High announced that cell phones and headphone usage would be banned entirely from the School with the exception of Lunch. This rule is preposterous as many students rely on their phones for research or school purposes, and rely on headphones in order to relax when doing schoolwork. It is statistically proven that for certain students the use of music increases productivity. We should not go against the change in the world doing so would put students behind in technology.

Studies have shown that the use of headphones during schoolwork can relieve stress, relieve anxiety, and help students be more productive with schoolwork. The use of cell phones can help students who don’t have access to their school laptop. 

The student body of Hereford High School is petitioning this as the rule spreads false misinformation about cell phone and headphone usage commonly used by boomers. 

Enrichment is a time to relax from the stress of schoolwork, why should we sacrifice our happiness to Jira just for BCPS boomer points?
