cellphones should be aloud in school
Drewbater

Con

Cellphones are a wonderful device that can do many things. Some keep you in contact with others, some entertain you with apps, some tell you the time. This does not mean phones are always helpful though. School, just like phones, is very helpful in life. It provides you with a education that will in turn help you get a job that you might keep for the rest of your life. This educational process would be ruined if phones were allowed. Children who need to pay attention to learn would now be on their phones, missing out on the helpful things being said. While a phone may provide you with short term happiness opposed to the sometimes boring school lessons, long term it will have bad effects. Would you trade a nice job and a house for some texting during school? Is it your dream to work at a fast food restaurant? If either of your answers was "NO" then vote against having phones during school. Thank you.

It is okay to bring a phone, but it must be shut off and put away during school hours.

If someone wanted to contact you during school, there are other methods besides calling your cell phone. Schools have offices and phone numbers of their own, and if someone needed to reach you during school hours they could call the office and the office could pass on the message.
Also, according to a study by http://europepmc.org..., people who use cell phones more tend to experience impulsiveness, anxiety and stress.

You should pay more attention in your English lessons, instead of playing with your cellphone. The correct spelling is "allowed". Stanjos, you mean "friend's house" and your sentence has no punctuation :-)
