Cell Phones in School.

By: Icho Icho

Should cell phones be used in school?

Cell phones should be used in school because they can help with homework, when there are no other devices to help students with the school work they should be able to use their phones, and phones should be used in school only when teacher lets the student.

Help in school

Students need to be allowed to use phones in school because this research shows that people already use phones in school for homework and it can help "39 percent use smart phones for homework." that was a quota from the article that support students using phones in school.

What if there is no other devices available?

I think that when there isn't any other devices to help students in school do there work, they should be able to use there cellphones its only fair. Alot of schools have iPod's or laptops to hep there students, but some don't and those schools should be able to use cell phones because According to the Pew Research Center, 77% of young people ages 12-17 have cellphones. One in four have a smartphone." that just goes to show that if 77% of us have phones why not let us use it for good?

Phones with teachers permission

Yes they should be in school when teachers let the students use phones in school. As this article says "They got rid of pay phones a couple years ago in high schools," Malik said. "The reason they got rid of pay phones is because of cellphones. But students aren't allowed to use them.", so it would only help students more in school if teachers allow to use there phones at the right time.

Conclusion

Cell phones should be used in school because It helps students with homework, it can be used if there are no other devices available, and with teachers permission.
