  • Cell phones should be allowed during lunch periods in schools, not during class.

    Cell phones should also be allowed within the classroom. Teachers often use students' phones for educational purposes. Besides, phones can be allowed as long as they're off and away during teaching.

    Intellisio In my school all students have a school laptop so their is nothing a phone can do the laptops cannot except call which is not an educational purpose. That is what I use to get on this site. So in my school I see no reason to have phone in classroom. 
  • Cell phones should not be allowed in classrooms. Schools can provide laptops, tablets, etc. for educational purposes. Phones should be allowed during lunch periods.

  • @Nope Although your school does provide any technology needed for educational purposes, students should still be ALLOWED to bring their phones to school. Whether they use it or not is a totally different argument.

    Intellisio I believe in my school phones should not be used in class but should be aloud to be used out side of class as that time is not being used for teaching and does not require attention. Students need to communicate with families some times in school and their is no reason to ban the use out of class.
