phones should be used in school because it can help students with their learning and can help them on researching and can be used as a calculator. phone can be used for an emergency example: fire,lockdown,and if your friends are in danger. come on if you dare ha ha ha

Cell phones should not be used in school because they are destracting and kids can not focus as well. If they want to use their phones for a calculator why don't they just use an actual calculator. You wouldn't need you phone for a fire or lock down, the teachers have phones in their rooms. What ois the chance that your friend is going to be in danger.

That depends on what kind of student you are. Some students might get on their phones and others might continue to do their work.

Ok then now let's see what you think.
The phone was invented to communicate with a people, for example in and emergency situation you would use your cell phone or phone to call our parents. And also in most of the schools in the world most students have 3G or WiFi this is to search anything we can search on the internet for research. Phones also can be useful for last minute calls, for example when you have a last minute sport event or you need to stay after school to study you can call your parents or guardians with a phone. But the problem is adults or teachers see it as as we getting distracted but adults need to understand the a phone is used in many ways the see it has a way of entertainment to play game and social media, but that is not all true it is use for many things and for example again it is use to research and also take pictures of notes so we can remember them when we have a test or an exam. Phones are useful in many ways this is way I think that phones should be allowed in schools.

You don't need to use your cell phone to call your parents last minute or call anyone for that matter because all school have phones in the classrooms and the office. Why would you need to take pictures of your notes if you already have them written down to look at whenever you need to.

Can you in all honesty say that all students will be using the phones to do research and not to play games quietly at the back of the class during lecture?

I agree with Cheyanne. Cell Phones are a distraction to the class. Why not have an real calculator? Kids would want to play on their phones instead of doing school work like they are allowed to. And what is there to guarantee that they will not be texting their friends, instagraming, or snapchatting? There is not guarantee!
