should laptops be allowed at schools
Debate Rounds (1)
As a student myself, I disagree with the statement. Many student are diagnosed dyslexic and sometimes severe handwriting issues, meaning that when taking notes from the board, they cannot keep up with the rest of the class or are not able to read their own notes. Students in the older years have more responsibility when working on laptops, so I disagree in your argument generalising all years together. At the school I am currently enrolled at, we have a system where the teacher routinely checks the students work on their laptops, mainly to see whether they are messing around on them or actually doing work. I do agree that in the younger years, the students sometimes lack the maturity to use a laptop correctly for work, however when properly monitored this needn't be an issue. For the issue about broken laptops- all items brought into school are at the students own risk as is other expensive articles brought into school. Also strained eyes only come when staring at a laptop for hours on end, whilst school has regular breaks, between classes and at lunch time aswell. Laptops can be extremely useful when writing essays, or creating accurate graphs and can transport all your work easily, so overall I believe that being able to have a laptop in class at school is a good thing and more schools should allow it.
