Students should be allowed to be on their phones during school hours.

Phones are devices that have the ability to be used for lots of things these days, entertainment, connections between friends and family, and most importantly, it has the power to go on the internet. I will be listing the reasons why students should be allowed to be on their phones. One very good "con" reasoning would be that phones distract the user of the phone, and could very well distract the students around the user of the phone. Lets do an example and have the debate going from there. S...

Should cell phones be permitted in school

I believe cell phones should be permitted in school because students could use them for educational purposes, to ward off boredom during free periods, and for safety. With the variety of educational apps available, technology in the classroom is an effective teaching/learning tool. Most students carry their cell phones anyway. Why not utilize them within the classroom learning environment positively. Many school districts do not have the funds available to provided computers or tablets for e...

Is it worth it to prepare and attempt getting into an ivy-league school?

Getting into an ivy-league university is one of the greatest merits a person can hold. Today, ivy-league schools are much better funded, and it is easy for a person of lesser economic background to aspire for a top tier school. Ivy-league schools also give the student a better time finding jobs, as getting into such a prestigious school is something that belongs on the top of a resume. On the other hand. if getting into an ivy-league is out of an individual's potential, then that person would ha...

Should high school and middle school students be able to use phones at passing time and at lunch.

bellareginag

I think that students should be allowed to use phones at passing time and lunch. Passing time and lunch are really the only free time that students get at school, so why not do what you would like to do during that time. Being on electronic devices at lunch can also relax and calm your brain that the school work that you have previously been doing....
