Using cell phones is school is permitted. However in class it shouldn't be. This distracts everyone, and interupts the main reason you go to school, to learn.

now my point is kids are already distracted so having a cell phone is worst. kids get distracted by almost every thing. then another point you can use your phone for research in class
Teemo

Con

There are already books and computers in the room. Not only are they better, but more efficient. A phone however not only distracts people in class, but the person they are talking to on the other line. Furthermore, not all phones can be used to research. In fact, plenty of phones can't even access the internet.



I ask you know, can you acces the internet on this phone? Cell phone use in class also endagers the owner to lose it, considering it is so small. Students are already distracted as it is, adding phones into the situation would make things worst. This is why cell phone use should not be permitted in class.
