why should cell phones not be allowed in school

Students are going to use cell phones in school anyway, even if they are not allowed. Might as well allow cell phones so they're not trying to hide them during class and getting distracted, even more so than if they could just reply to a text and be done with. Should cell phones be allowed at school! I think cell phones should be allowed at school because it is a very useful electronic to use at school and instead of writing the lesson you can just easily just record the lesson and it will help on math classes or ether study hall and if you are afraid of people cheating on test you can just easily just put on your desk until the test is over and before they ether start the test check them if they have a cell phone. Technology is the future. Technology is the future of our society and world so not letting students bring phones to school doesn't make sense as technology is the future of the world and will always be with these students for ever and emergencies can happen and having a phone is a good tool to get help or contact your family. Instead of using computers and ipads you can bring your own device to save money it is way more effecient and helpful than it is if the school waste money on other electronics you can use anything. It waste less supplies and less money so schools can use it on other things. I think that they should be allowed in school because they can be used if you need to call their mom or dad if they need to come pick them up. Why are the teachers allowed to have cell phones in school and we are not. The teachers do not terner of there phones and can be loud when the phone has a call. Emergercys can happen any time!!! Think about this u know bad kids and all ways doing what there not supposed to however if u let them on there phone on necessary times they will most likely use there opportunitys carefully and if u dont let them use the phone they will usually do it because they said no. Phones will be with students for the rest of their lives.


The fact is that mobile phones will be with us for the rest of our lives, so we need to develop good habits and self control with the uses of these devices. Taking them away from students will only make them want it more and they will not be able to control the usage and appropriate times of usage. Yes and its time schools got with the times. People live and die by these devices because they are more than just a communications tool - they are planners, encyclopedias (by virtue of the Internet), sources of current events and information and a virtual plethora of labor and time savings modules wrapped up in one box. Schools need to get with the times and realize that in daily life, using a cell phone is going to be as much a necessity as balancing a checkbook (also done on a smart phone) or showing up to work on time every day. As an added benefit, these devices are essential in cases of emergency, you know, for when the next mentally unbalanced moron decides to take out his demons on the student body.
by Aja Landolfi, junior co editor in chief Cell phones are all around us. Most adults, teens and even kids as young as nine have cell phones. Cell phones used to be given to children by their parents as a way to get in contact with each other during an emergency. Now technology has changed so much that most kids have a phone just for the fun it can provide. According to б cell phones were originally banned from schools because of their connection to gang activity, as well as being a disruption to classes. These bans started over a decade ago and they have been altered a few times since then, but they have never allowed students to have their cell phones in school. On Mayor de Blasio and SchoolБs Chancellor Carmen Fariцa announced that they are going to be lifting the cell phone ban. If the panel approves of this, the new law will take place on March 2. By the ban being lifted it will now allow the principals of all NYC schools to decide if their students will be allowed to have their phones on them and if they will be allowed to use them.


Many families feel that it is important for students to be able to have their cell phones on them in school in case of an emergency. Families say that in a time of crisis they need to be able to get in touch with each other. Even though this factor would be a beneficial one, if cell phones are allowed in schools there will be a lot more negative factors than positive ones. БI think having our cell phones in school isnБt a bad thing because if there is a family emergency your parents can reach you and make sure youБre okay,Б sixth grader Layla Rodriguez. Cell phones in the classroom will serve as a distraction to kids learning. If cell phones were allowed in schools very few students would actually pay attention to what is being taught. Why would they pay attention when they could be talking with friends in another school or class, surfing the web, or playing games. The cell phones in the classroom would only cause a distraction and studentБs grades would greatly suffer. БItБs extremely distracting because I know a lot of people who text and drive and even walk and drive so when given the opportunity to use their cell phone in the classroom, they will avert their attention to what they think is more interesting like social media then what teachers have to say,Б middle school dean Mr. Angeles said. Not only would cellphones cause a distraction to the kids who are carrying them, it will also pose as a distraction to the kids who arenБt carrying their cellphones on them and are trying to learn. With the constant distraction of a cell phone going off and being out, many students could struggle with paying attention and staying focused in school. БI think itБs a good thing because it can be more educational and it could help with school work. Students should have a right to have their phones as long as they arenБt doing anything bad on it,Б freshman Nikita Mosier said.


Cheating on tests would also become a growing problem. In many schools, cheating is already a big problem. If students are allowed to carry and use their cell phones, cheating would become easier. If students б are given permission to use their cell phones, administration canБt really limit them and tell them that they canБt have it for a certain period that day. Even if limits are put in place, rules arenБt always followed. When kids go to school they should feel safe. The only thing that they should be worried about is their education. However, with the issue of bullying occurring in so many schools a lot of kids go to school in fear. When students get bullied it can threaten their emotional and physical well being at school, it can also affect their learning. If students feel threatened all the time, they wonБt be able to focus in class and get the education that they need. If cell phones were to become allowed in schools, it would make bullying a lot easier. Rumors and news would spread ten times quicker than if no one had their cell phones on them. This faster form of bullying would make school even worse for the kids who are already bullied. If the principals in schools want their students to succeed, they would allow their students to bring their cell phones into school but not carry them around or have them in any of their classes. By having their cell phones in school, students would be allowed to get in touch with their parents after school, and in case of an emergency. At the same time however not being allowed to have them in class will allow students to focus and learn what they need to learn to succeed in life. БThe lift of the cell phone policy is meant for schools that have scanning before you enter the building. It now means that those schools will no longer have the scanning. Our cell policy will remain our cell policy,Б principal Mrs. Schneider said.
