I'm a high school physics teacher, and I use my TI-85 every day. I've had that calculator since 1994, and it's the one calculator I never let the students borrow when they forget theirs. The kids laugh when they see the calculator and find out its as old as they are. Then, they are amazed, and a bit jealous, that it will do unit conversions and has the built in ability to solve polynomials.

Teachers cannot establish, maintain, or use a work-related website unless it is available to school administrators and the child's legal custodian, physical custodian, or legal guardian. Teachers also cannot have a nonwork-related website that allows exclusive access with a current or former student. Former student is defined as any person who was at one time a student at the school at which the teacher is employed and who is eighteen years of age or less and who has not graduated.

All the news stories about this bill seem to leave out that last sentence.
