• I believe that they should.

    Students should be able to use their phones in school, because if their is an emergency they could call for help. Another reason students should use phones in school is, because it could save paper by taking notes on your phone or going on websites for activities. The teachers could also set up a firewall that could prevent students from accessing other apps on their devices. That is why i think students should be able to use their phones in school.

  • Cell phones should be in school

    Cause we are aloud to use computer, but not our phones? So unfair
    why are the teachers so lucky we deserve to have our phone two. You call us responable why dont you all show it so agree to my opinion ,yes and could our phones. P.S. Yall are awesome

  • Why shouldn't we?

    I mean I don't personally see anything wrong wit it because I am still in middle school but students have a right to use their phones>I mean if the board of education says that we cant use our cell phones then that is a different approach that I will not talk about. But since its the school saying it then I don't see the problem with it.

  • Yes there should be!

    There should be cell phones in school becuase it allows people to call 911 or other people in case of emergencies. Cell phones are a distraction during class so students should turn their cell phones off then. Students can also use study websites likes Study Stacks to study for class.

  • Yes, but not in use or in evidence.

    Children and teens in school should be able to have cell phones in case of emergency or to call their parents, but these should be disallowed when it comes to class room activity. They should be in back packs or in pockets and a teacher should be allowed to confiscate if they are used in class.

  • Cell phones should be allowed in schools.

    Provided they are not being used while in class, cell phones don't really pose any problems. They provide a way for students to contact rides to and from school, and contacts in case of an emergency situation either going to or from school, or even while at school. Should an emergency situation arise in class, help could be reached much easier with cell phones.

  • Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Cellphones also provide internet access to students. To some allowing internet access to adolescences on their cellphones during school hours doesn’t sound like a brilliant idea because students could access inappropriate materials, but there are new techniques that can prevent that. Schools who do not allow cellphones could follow in the footsteps of Iroquois high school in KY “parents have to sign a waiver covering things like damage and appropriate use and during school hours, students will have to use the districts wireless network which has security firewalls that prohibit them from getting on inappropriate websites” (Ansari, “Students and Smartphones, Area Schools Embracing Technology”). There’s many different ways to monitor what children can see on their electronic devices. Schools could use the same system some parents use on their children’s devices; like parental blocking programs and Wi-Fi firewalls.
    Cellphones can be a resource for quick research and impact students that are visual learners. If students are reading about an unfamiliar setting or period in time, with cellphones and their internet access they could look up what people wore, what places looked like, and get a feel for their next chapter in the class. With cellphones students will be able to find the research strategies that suit them best.

  • No, it's rude!

    You should use your phone, but only if there's an emergency. If you do it during class or when someone is talking, it's very rude and you could get your phone taken away. It doesn't matter what you're doing on your phone during class, you should not be using it during school hours, unless there is an emergency.

  • It is bad for your security

    It is bad for your security. If there is a bomb threat it is dangerous. If you use you phone it might make the bomb explode. And if you use it in recces, someone might call you and track your device. Then, your life will be in danger. They could do something bad to you.
