Cell phones should not be allowed in classrooms because they give students the ability to cheat. It is also unfair as some of the kids with phones will play games on them in class. this is extremely unfair to those kids who want to learn as the kids playing games end up sniggering and making a huge fuss. I should know, as I have to deal with about six fellow classmates who won't stop giggling and then when we tell the teacher the kids put on their angelic faces and become perfectly innocent.


While I do admit that there are some potential risks when allowing phones during school hours. There are, however, some benefits for students to have their phones. Like how in case if the student left something at home or there is some sort of family emergency, they can call their parents. Or in the rare case where there is a school fire or shooting happening and the parent wants to know if their child is ok, they can call them. Students having their phones can teach them responsibility too.
