iPods banned at Sydney's International Grammar School

Those crazy Aussies in Sydney at the Internation Grammar School have decided to ban iPods because, apparently, they enable students to “avoid communication with others” and may lead to “social isolation or escape from our community.”

Anyone else think this is dumb? I mean, really, it’s not the iPod that causes social isolation, it’s the headphones! If students didn’t use headphones with their iPods there would be no problem right? If I was an administrator at that school that’s what I’d have done, ban the headphones. Problem solved. Sheesh.
