It will cut down spending.
so it won"t have to spend so much money when the student already have the device.
It will help the kids get more into and interested in the lesson.
New common core curriculum will soon force school districts to make changes because more and more things have to do with online school things.

I believe cell Phones should not be allowed in school because it could be a source for cheating. Students could use websites such as Google, Bing, or even Yahoo to find answers for a big test. According to the buzzle.com, at least 35% of students admit to cheating by using their cell phone. When students use their phone during lessons, it could distract other students, the flashing lights, constant vibrations, and even small noises make a difference when trying to learn something.
Cell phones could also Lead to bullying. Students could send misleading information about other people via text, or email. This could also be a hostility thing, such as ragging, and or ridicule. Fact- 78% of teenagers have a cell phone.

but what about all parents want to be able to know where their child are at all times.▪A parent"s worst nightmare is not knowing where their child is at times.▪since9/11/00 there has been more worry for people. The reassurance feeling that parents will be able to contact their child at school, for any reason will help the feeling. 3. how cell phones can help students in the class rooms" most phones have videos cameras so students can video the lesson and then send it to the absent students " some math teachers require to have a calculator and most students spend money on them so why spend money on them when you can just use a mobile device to do the math. and teacher could away take away the phone during a teacher most big school do already
