I think computers should be allowed because it'll help you alot in class and you can save your projects and essays and not have to worry about going to the computer lab and get the power point or your project done. Laptops are easy to you can use them in class and take notes instead of using paper because you wouldn't loose your notes if you were using a laptop it would be saved in your files.

They might be useful for class but kids will not use them for that. Kids have a short attention span and will get detracted and start playing games and their work will suffer.

Not always though most people will do their work because they think if i don't learn i will fail and i will have to repeat the grade again. So they know that they can play on their computers at home. They know they have to take their work seriously

Some kids do know that but the kids that already have trouble paying attention in class will be playing games or on Facebook.
