This blog post is from an 8th grade teacher comparing an 8th graders experience in 2008 vs 2018 in an embarrassing situation.
This American organization waituntil8th.org is an organization that is working to get parents and children to wait until children are in 8th grade (or grade 8 as we say in Canada) before they get their first smartphone.
And while I'm not advocating for the pledge on their website, their blog posts do have interesting and thought provoking entries and information.
The blog post that I have linked to made me think about the multiple sides to the incident described, as well as to the motivation behind actions taken.
