  • Yes they can.

    Kids should be allowed to have cell phones at school. What if a parent needs to contact their kid for some reason or a family emergency? Schools do not always make it easy to pass info along hence why the phone is needed. Yes they should be off during class, but allowed at school.

  • Can, but why allow them?

    Children and teenagers will find ways to distract themselves in school - this is a fact that is as old as school in general. Cell phones are simply newer ways for kids to distract themselves; while they're likely to distract themselves anyway, there's no reason that they should be allowed to have the chance for further distraction.

  • Yes. Cell phones are as common as anything else.

    Cell phones, per se, do not cause concentration problems. This is a matter of personal responsibility for the kid. If the sounds bother them, they can simply turn the volume down or turn the phone off. The ability of the child to concentrate has nothing to do with what's around him/her. In fact, having one around can actually be a good way for the child to learn how to concentrate.

  • Cell phones are a distraction and can endanger you in many ways.

    In the distraction side, they can distract you from what you really need to be doing, like homework and things like that. The way they endanger you: they can stop you from doing good in school, which leads to bad grades, which could eventually lead to not being able to get scholarships to the school of your choice. They can endanger your future. Plus they can cause cyber bullying, which also can endanger their self esteem and could lead to suicide.

  • Cell phones should be banned during school hours

    Cell phones are a big problem in school. Kids who have cell phones will be lured into addiction and consequences come in numbers. If there is an emergency, there will be a lot of school phones in the office and parents will be able to contact their child from there. Cell phones also make school less enjoyable as kids will always want to be on them and they will be bored because they have to wait all the way until dismissal to access them.
