I personally believe that students should be able to use cell phones. It is the 21st century and information is key importance in education. When the school allow to use cell phones, the students will be able to use internet to research about their topic. This is prime in education.
I believe that kids should not get to use their phones in class. Because they can distract the students or the teacher. Or their phones can distract them by using other people to help them on their test's. For example they can ask that what number is this or ask them about what they wrote for their essay.
