Laptops should be in schools because its a good need for kids. It grabs information to the topic the student need so i guess ill go on Pro so my friend should go to Con lolololool


Kids should not have laptops in school.

Contention 1- Laptops have access to porn

It's been shown that kids who see porn develop unhealthy attitudes towards sex.[1]

Contention 2- The Internet has bad information

If a teacher is trying to teach the kids about how the pyramids were built and the kid came across a website on aliens building the pyramids it may take kids off subject. [2] This unneccesary distraction could take valuable time away from learning the curriculum and affect standardized testing grades.

As you can see laptops in school is a very bad thing vote con.

My own refutation to Con's arguments.

Here it is;


It's in every school so, it blocks every unnecessary website from the school district. And not to mention every school has them the students are having no problem.

Not to mention, students do better research with computers.
