I believe that cell phones should be allowed inside schools to a limit. They should be allowed in the hallways and during lunch. In classrooms though, I think teachers have the right to tell you to put your phones away. They are trying to teach. Only at the beginning and end of class should phones be allowed in the classroom.

I would like to thank my opponent first in making the debate.

I must say that cellphones should be banned from school. Why? I have many different reasons why we should ban cellphones school.

1. If we immerse ourselves into using our cellphones, it could cause radiation which is dangerous for our eyes.
2. Cellphones distract us when we are in class. When a professor is discussing a topic in front then you are texting with your text mate. You won't be able to understand what the professor is saying in front, which can result into low grades during exams and tests. Also, if the professor were to catch you using your cellphone during class time, he might send you into detention.

Those were just examples on why we should ban cellphones from schools.

You might want to change the resolution to:
Should cell phones be banned in class?
rather than
Should cell phones be banned in school?

You've mentioned that you think that cell phones should be allowed inside schools to a limit.
This can be viewed as a concession, so you should change the resolution.
