Should students be able to bring their phones to school?

  • Cell phones may be the only mode of communication

    Yes, I believe that students should be allowed to bring their phones to school. In today's technological and mobile society many homes no longer own a home phone (land line), so the only for of communication between the student and their parents is their cell phone. I think that students should only be able use the phone in an emergency and when school is over.

  • Phones in schools should not be a problem.

    I truly don't see any problems or issues with students taking their phones with them to school. As a matter of policy, they can be taught to use them responsibly the same way every adult does. In between classes and on breaks is okay, otherwise is not unless your instructor has told you so.

  • Yes within reason

    Today there is a much different culture than there was years ago. As long as students are using them in appropriate ways and not for bullying, meeting up, then phones should be allowed in schools. As a parent I would like to be able to communicate with my kids if needed and if it didn't create a disruptive environment.

  • Emergencies can happen

    Students should be allowed to bring their cell phones to school and shouldn't be forced to do anything more extreme than putting them on silent for the duration of classtime. In between classes and during lunch, they should be free to do whatever they want on their phones, especially in the event of a family emergency when a parent needs to contact their child.

  • Yes, but not take them out.

    Cell phones that students bring to school at any age through high school should be kept out of sight in back packs or in pockets. They are too much like computers these days and they will be used for distracting activities if they are put out where a teacher can see.

  • Use in Case of Emergency

    Children and students should be able to bring their phones to school in case of an emergency. If a school shooter shows up, a cell phone is the fastest way to dial 9-1-1 to call for help. If the child gets into trouble on the way to or from school, a cell phone may also be the way to get help. A cell phone isn't just a toy, it can be a lifeline.

  • Students should be able to bring their phones to school.

    So long as their use is regulated, students should be allowed to bring their phones to school. Texting has become the primary means of communication among students, and, so long as the use is not disruptive, there is no good reason not to allow them. It also makes it easier for them (students) to contact their parents and vice versa.

  • Of course not!

    All they're gonna do, is take selfies, text, and do other stupid things, it's a terrible idea, the phones are so small, and can be easly hidden in class.
    They'll abuse the school's WiFi, and do other stupid stuff, they shouldn't even have phones unless they're in high-school, much less elementary.

  • They can text, play games, or eve take selfies

    If there is an emergency at school the teachers have phones. At recess some kids don't even have phones so they would be left out. Even if they turn off the Wifi and internet connection they can still play game in there desk and they aren' learning anything. Just saying (this is coming from a student)
