Cellphones
http://www.thefreedictionary.com...
A portable and mobile telephone

Do you think cell phones are good? Do you advise children to have cellphones? To answer all these questions cell phones are a good use of technology in school. My argument is simple

Cell phones are used as mobile telephones. The government does not have the right to take away cell phones because of how it gets in the way of learning time. Cell phones can be used
1) For emergency
2) Contact their parents
3) Record something they have wanted to see that they wouldn't see before.
Its not the governments priority to take away cell phones because it will basically not change the fact that children will do better without cellphones. The government has no right to take away a phone from a child at school because
1) How will the person be able to contact a family member what if there is a shooting in the school. Do you think the teachers will have time to call 300 or more parents. This is the reason children need phones in school
2) How will they record something that they would never seen before. What if there is a show in school and they really liked it and wanted to show it to his/her friend without a phone how will you be able to that
3) How will your parents know your safe? Basically it wouldn't really make any sense. Some children call their parents every morning. Without a phone in school how do you expect parents to know how their child is.
That's it for now

Using cellphones in school? NO! Student could get distracted in school and maybe when the teacher arnt paying attention they could be texting or taking photos. Some people don't like it when they are in photos. Most people would agree with having phones in school but they dont relieze if we do, you will not get to text. Cellphone in School can cause so much drama between school cause what happens if somegirl takes a picture of a non popular girl and in was embarresing and the popular girl desides to have some fun with this photo? Like Blackmail or she just desides to go a head and send it to everyone? Think of the bad things that might happen.
The answers to the questions from Spiderman1
3) Parents should always know your safe because they shouldn't just let you go out on your own.
2) That kid should have been at school and seen it himself.
1) The office should be able to do that themselfs.

And your proof where? How do I know you're not making things up. Like said my argument is simple. The government has no right to take phones away from children and the negative outcome is
1) children cant contact their parents I already stated if there was a school shooting how will the office afford to call 300 or more students. And basically a child doesn't need to go to the office to just call their parents, if they had a phone it would be quicker

2) What if I was lost on a school trip and no one ever knew where I was wouldn't I call someone for an emergency? Yup I would
The office cannot afford to call parents constantly and if you would know phones are not only used for emergency but if a child wanted to look up something they would have the access to do so.

Taking a phone away from school would not change the fact that children will get less distracted. And basically your being asserted about how children become more distracted with phones. And how would you claim that children use their phone when a teacher is not paying attention.Thats what I have for now.
