Board of Education Opposed to Screen Safety, Claims Fed Regulates Screen Time, Do Not Want Medical Oversight

The Montgomery County Board of Education is opposed to legislation that would authorize the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to develop safety guidelines for the use of computer screens in public school classrooms. 

The Montgomery County Board of Education "thinks" that the federal government has already regulated the use of computer screens in classrooms.  If such regulations exist, they apparently permit unlimited screen time for students of all ages while in school

The question remains if unlimited screen time for students of all ages while they are in public school is in the best interest of the long term health of those children. 



The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood disagrees with the position of the Montgomery County Board of Education and calls for passage of House Bill 866.
