Should Phones Be Allowed in School?

Zachary9804
RileyCarey

Phones should definitely NOT be allowed in any school because all it does is bad. Phones only serve as a distraction in class and students will miss what the teacher is saying and when the class starts a worksheet or project, the student will have no idea what is going on. Students have the ability to call, text or play games during class under their desk so no one will see but when the teacher finds out, he or she will obviously have to reprimand the student, turning the direction to the studen...

Laptops in Class

PrefaceI am auditing a class over the winter break, and I've noticed that the professor prohibits the use of laptops in class. When asked why, he cited their potential for distraction. I am interested in having a debate on this topic, since I have also heard educators laud the things that laptops can enable them to do with students. I think this should be an enlightening discourse.There is a 2,000 ELO minimum needed to vote on this debate. You must h...

Rules of the debate are as follows: 1. Round one is used for acceptance only. 2. Rounds two and three are good for debate. 3. Round four is for conclusions and any final comments that do not add arguments. 4. Any questions should be deferred to the comments section just for clarity. 5. Use sources to back up your points. Objective logic and deductive reasoning do not have to have sources but factual evidence needs to be linked. 6. I understand that English is not the universal...

Weapons of Mass Destruction are bad, they can lead to wars that will eventually end our world, I don't want to see that happen do you? Even the people they don't kill in the very initial start will die because of radiation, so let me ask you would you rather die of radiation or destroy all of them so we cant live under their constant threats...

"What is a Chore? A chore is regarded as something one is being forced to do, and in this case implied boredom. For those have a passion of literature it is not a chore, nor is it a chore for those who like the book. But for some, especially those with reading difficulties, it is a chore. A task which is lengthy, and often is followed by a long essay. Although personally I find reading classics interesting. I understand the ideas of those who find it a burden...?" - u BOGUS Like - CLAS...
