school children should not able to bring phones to school
Debate Rounds (4)
Please bring up some arguments for your statement.
1. it is more convinient than searching for change in case of emergencies
2. it is more reliable than an office phone
3. it can be used as a calculator ,a notepad
I am not sure if i should argue for or against phones in school.
Firstly, when you say school children then I am thinking of children from the age of 6 - 12.
Children in this age is still yet to learn what respect is and how to act and behave in school and other social places. If phones were allowed in school, then it would be misused by the students. Facebook and Twitter and what so ever is a curse for all, because it is hard to stay away from if we get a text or a like.
I do not see what a child would need a phone for in the middle of a class so i do can not see the point of bringing statement 2 up.
you say that: "3. it can be used as a calculator ,a notepad" There is a reason for us to have a calculator with us in school every day, so why not use it. And on the other hand, a calculator can do much more then a phone can.
I believe that it would be difficult for young students to have their phone with them in school because it would only be a temptation.
