I believe that cell phones need to be legal in schools. If the kids do not want to learn that it is there own fault. The kids need to have responsibilities and they need to learn how to deal with their cell phone in a work envirment.

There are many reason students shouldnt have cell phones in school.
Cell phones are a distraction. Many kids will forget to turn their phones off.
Cheating is another big reason why we should not allow cell phones. Students can share information during exams. They can also store any information they want on their cell phone.
Invasion of privacy! Camera phones are very popular, and they are sometimes used in an inappropriate way in schools, for example in bathrooms.
Harassment can be taken place. There are already bullys in school why make another access for kids to be bullied? There may be an issue with stealing! cell phones are usually worth over $100 and not every family can afford to buy one for their children.

Okay but even if you say all theses things its still happening right now, so there shouldnt be a stop to it since its already happening. If you were to stop it then the kids are just going to want to do it more

If you put more of a restriction on cell phones students wont use them without a teacher catching them. We have school to learn and i believe we shouldnt have cell phones in the way at school because school usually determines our individual future.

Yes those things are all true but if we were to allow them it would be very popular for the first month or so and then after a while kids would start to understand that there grade it at fault. It doesnt matter that they could cheat with them, kids more then likely still cheat. But if we give them a right then they wont feel as cool doing it anymore as when it wasnt allowed

Cell phones can be a distraction but also useful for when schools don't have access to technology. Research can be done on them and they do get around the school internet filter which at my school seems to block everything.
