I will be on the pro side.
I beleive that, if only used at proper times, cell phones could be not only permitted, but useful. For instance, say there isn't a clock in the classroom, cell phone. Or what if you need to remember something really important your teacher just told you (outside of class, stuff you DON'T take notes on,) cell phone. All in all, they can be useful for an average schoolday.

Phones can be a major distraction in school. Normally, schools do have a clock, and if they don't you could use a watch. Now days, teachers use online programs, like schoolloop, and post major things that students need to remember. Also why would a student need to use a phone a school? All their questions can be answered by textbooks or the teacher and given the option to use their phones, many students would play games such as Clash of Clans on their phones, or text their friends instead of using it for educational purposes. Also, no one could concentrate if phones went of everyday in class. I personally think that using phones in school is a bad idea.
