As long as it is not distracting to the student or other students then it should be allowed in school... What about during lunch when they want to take pictures with friends to capture there high school experience? What about to call there parents after school for a ride? So what i am trying to say is during class no but in school when they are not in class then sure let them have there phone...
We live in the digital age, Where technology is everything. If we continue to ban phones then students will find a way to bring them in regardless. If they get caught then they will only be encouraged to be sneakier about it. The only way out of this loophole is to allow smartphones.
Smartphones can be distracting but they are a great way to communicate with others. In case of emergency, A smart phone could be used to communicate to possibly save someones life. They could also help people with research, Directions and expressing their opinion. That's my view of smartphones in school.
Smart phones are a great tool for keeping days; assignments and daily tasks organized and in check. The issue of distraction arises when an individual is unable to keep self control and in consequence they will be the ones to fail their courses. The smart phone gives an individual the opportunity to have an individualized computer which can then be used as a tool rather than a distraction. It is the lack of self control which causes issue; which then brings the question is it the smartphone that is the issue; or the students using the tool?
Students can be addicted to the Internet and games . And of course, there are always some bad movies or films that will affect students a lot in very negative ways. If kids use phone too much, that will lead to many problems for them such as myopia ,autism, obesity .....And so on.
Cellphones are not all that bad they could be better than a white board and I love being able to text my friends at school and I have no doubt that most people will want to have smartphones in school and it will make all kids happy with their own personal phone.

In Congress, July 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. —That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

Come pick them up if they are sick. Also, cell phones allow parents to
keep track of their children’s whereabouts before, during, and after
school. And, of course, there’s always the possibility of a student
needing to contact a parent because of a dangerous situation. Thus,
having a cell phone is like having a guardian angel. Students can also
connect with friends, but not just because it’s a fun thing to do; my
teacher asks us to text or email our friends when they are absent to
let them know what’s going on in class and to inform them of any
homework. When used responsibly, a cell phone can be an excellent
Cell phones – especially smart phones - are a fabulous
learning resource. Students can use tools such as the calculator, the
map finder, and the calendar. I’ve used my cell phone in Math and
Geography and to keep track of my homework. My science teacher lets
us use our smart phones to do research when we are doing group work
or working on a project. For example, when we were studying ecology
we did research on local jobs having to do with protecting the
environment. Plus there are lots of great learning websites – including
essay-writing websites – we can use to supplement the learning in class.
Cell phones are a quick and easy way to incorporate technology in the
Cell phones encourage the responsible use of technology.
Students can learn when and how to use their cell phones to enhance
their learning. They will become more independent in their work and
more motivated to learn. Students like being allowed to make choices,
and they understand consequences. If a student is texting when
he/she should be paying attention to the teacher, the teacher should
take the cell phone temporarily away. No big deal. Before a test, all cell
phones should be placed on the teacher’s desk. Again, no big deal. By
allowing the use of cell phones, students will feel like they are being
treated like responsible young adults, and they will appreciate that. If
teachers are patient, understanding, and consistent, students will
Students are constantly on their phones engaged in social and 9 out of 10 they are just playing and taking selfies. If a teacher allows students to use their phones for research; they usually end up back on social media. This generation is addicted. You see it everywhere. People can't even work without checking their phones. Its sickening!
Smart phones should be allowed in schools because it plays a vital role in society. If there is ever an emergency the kids need to be able to contact their parents immediately. If the school were to have a lockdown how would the kids contact their parents to come get them. When most people here smartphone the first thing that comes to mind is fancy gizmos and games. It would be better if the school provided a phone without any games, or fancy gizmos for emergencies. This is what I believe about smart phones.
Students should not be allowed to be used in school because they could be taking photos of other students without their permission. They might have taken an embarrassing photo of another student without them knowing and could post it on social media or use the photo to threaten the student to do stuff they might not want to do.
We are paying $600 billion for a students education... They need to respect that and stay focused... If they leave school without having had learned a thing, they have wasted all that effort put into their education... When they go to school, learning should be it. You do not need to be playing Angry Birds on your smart phone or texting your 'bff.'
If you need some high class technology for your lesson, the school will provide it for you.
More and more studies are coming up highlighting how damaging phones are to the brains of children. Even though, we live in a tech world in the 21st century, adults can manage the resulting effects of living in a virtual world, children do not. They also do know moderation and restriction, and they are suppose to be learning how interact and socialize with other children, teachers and more in normal setting . Schools already use computers in the classroom to aid learning. Phones are not needed and parents of today need to stop blocking the normal development that children had in previous generations.
Because if students bring cellphone so there should be an competition between them that who has the latest and hottest modal.It can also led to theft.If children's want to convey any information so schools have computers so they can conveyed throughit.If we say that students should bring cell phone to that parents can call their children in an emergency but parents can also call on school or in school reception.
They are a big distraction from learning and education. They might help if there is an emergency but teachers and the office could have phones to reach families of the students. If it goes off in the middle of the class then the kids that are trying to learn will be distracted from the vibrate or sound of the phone if it is not turned off.
Most schools already have computers and tablets in there system. The students can simply email each other or actual face to face talking. They can write essays at school and study there too. But for the less fortunate schools, they can take a libertie and let student use their phones
Theft may occur when students bring phones to school because the other students may get jealous so they might steal it. Because of that the school have to waste time finding who is the culprit and also it is a loss to those who lost their phone. So it is good not to waste time and just don`t bring phone to school.
