Should students have the right to cell phones in class?

  • We should have cellphones in class!!!

    Cellphones are good to use, they help us learn and many other things. Teachers have phones to and they text during class when their "supposed" to teach us.... So why cant teachers phones be taken away from the principal or something cause this isn't fair! Anybody agree with me or not...

  • If there is an emergency

  • As long as they're silent

    Cell phones are such an integral part of modern society that there's no reason that students shouldn't carry them on their persons at all times, in the classroom or outside. The only thing they should do is either put them on silent or turn them off so as not to disrupt classtime. Outside of the class, even in school during breaks, they should be free to do what they want.

  • School Shootings Prompt Emergency Needs

    Students should bring cell phones in class because of emergencies, bullies and mass shootings that plague our society today. Cell phones are a part of everyday life, and kids who are old enough to use them should have them in case of emergencies. It's not enough to have phones in lockers at school when violence happens against people at any time. Until the safety and security of students in the classroom can be guaranteed, kids should have cell phones in class.

  • Yes, and no.

    Yes students should have a right to have and keep their cell phone on them while in class. There could be a family emergency that they will need to take and answer for. However, in the normal situation a student should not be on or using their phone while in class.

  • The issue is a right versus a bureaucratic system

    The Bill of Rights guarantees us the right to freely exchange ideas and thoughts; publish photos, concepts, and news; and associate with whomever we choose. The classroom requires a quiet, non-disruptive learning environment to be most effective. These two requirements come into conflict in the case of cell phones in the classroom. The matter is simple to resolve, however. The freedom of speech is a constitutionally guaranteed right. The framers found it to be so important, in fact, that it was the first enumerated right in the Bill of Rights. The education system, on the other hand, is a poorly-managed, bureaucratic cabinet department. Constitutional rights take priority. A concession that cell phones in classrooms must be silent may be acceptable, but a blanket ban is not.

  • I think no

    Dangerous for the mind could get harrassed.Realy would you want your child to get harrased or bullied at such a young age ? So just quit giving them a cell phone esspecialy if their under 12. I hope you understand my needs as i am under 12. This has happened to me before

  • Students should not be able to use a phone in class or school.

    Not everyone has a smart phone. .66% of everyone in the world has a smart phone. What would the .33% of the people in the US do that don't have a phone do? They could go on the chrome books, but then everyone should do the same as well. It's also a distraction. People could get a call and then they may want to answer it. It may also be the same for a text or something else. People are also not responsible enough. They can be playing something else also.

  • Students should not be able to use cell phones in class.

    Students should not be able to use cell phones in class because using cell phones can distract their learning, make it harder to focus, and can lead to worse grades. Cell phones can distract a student's learning because instead of using their cell phone for research or school purposes, they may get distracted and use social media, text friends, or do other stuff that is not allowed in school. Additionally, cell phones can be a cause of cheating, because on tests, students may text their friends the answers, or they could even just look up the answers on the internet. Cell phones are also harder for the teachers to monitor. Unlike computers that are owned by the district and therefore monitored by the district, personal cell phones cannot be monitored the same way as the computers, therefore making it harder to make sure students aren't cheating or doing things they aren't supposed to.

  • No, Students should not have phones in class

    Because they will get distracted and end up getting bad grades and they will distract the other students if their phone goes off in class. And the other kids will be distracted if those kids that have their phones out and are showing the other kids. That is why students should not have phones in class!!!

  • A complete distraction

    People throw the term 'right' around as if it has a far simpler meaning than what it does. Children do not have a right to having a cell phone in class. Cell phones can be decided by the parents at home, but in school, children have to learn and focus on the immediate presence.

  • Students should not have the right to use cellphones in class

    Students should be able to have cell phones on their person in pockets, purses, backpacks or such but should not be permitted to have them out or in use at anytime during the class period. The students should be capable of understanding and following the rules and the teachers should not have to waste class time policing cell phone use. But since many students are not capable of following the rules and it is important to keep teachers teaching and not policing the use of cell phones in the class cell phones will have to be kept off campus or in their lockers.

  • Students should not have a right to have cell phones in class.

    Students should not have a right to have cell phones in class. They should not be allowed to bring them into the building at all. This just causes disturbances in the classroom and takes away from the attention of everyone. There is also a chance that they will lose these items.

  • No, cell phones in class are distracting.

    Students, even younger ones, may be allowed to bring cell phones to school in case of emergency or to reach their parents. However, the school should have penalties for taking that phone out and placing it on a desk or under a desk during a class room session because they will either be texting friends or looking up things unrelated to school.
