I only ever saw them advertised as toys and not tools. Regardless, kids shouldn't have toys in schools. Most schools that have banned them still allow for true ADHD kids.
You assume it's just elementary kids using these toys. I teach high school and frankly they have become the Distraction du Jour for kids already distracted by their cell phones and tablets. Imagine if your boss, during a meeting, popped one of these out and just started spinning it, playing with it. Would you be pleased? You wonder why kids don't learn-it's because of stuff like this. I swear the Chinese did this on purpose.
