Should Cell Phones be allowed in School?

Kids absolutely should be able to have their phones in school. If their is an emergency at school they can call 911. By having that cell phone they could save lives. Their can be a small emergency like someone forgot their calculate at home they can just text their mom or dad to bring it with out causing a big scene. Students can use their phone for taking notes on it. They also are more likely to use their cell phone in class if teachers ban them from using them.

What happens if there is an emergency?

If kids have their phone with them and their is an emergency they can call 911. Police will get their fast because they called them sooner and that could of saved lives. Their can be a smaller emergency like someone forgot their homework and they can just text their mom or dad to bring it. Parents also can feel safer that their child has a way to keep in touch with them if something does happen. Does anyone think about the walk to and from school. What happens if they fall down and can not get back up and they don't have a cellphone? That person has to hope someone comes by and stops. If they have a cellphone they can call 911 or their parents.

Kids can use their phones to take notes and study.

I know from personal experience that I would rather use my cell phone to study. Kids are more likely to study if they can use their phone. Kids might think that it is cool to take notes on their phone so they will. Kids would rather type notes then wright them on paper. Also kids always say they lost their notes. If the notes are on their phone they are not going to lose them. Kids always have their phones with them. They can be studying while they are in the car or waiting in line for something. Then later on they don't need to study so they can go out with their friends.

Kids are going to use phones either way.

Kids are going to use their phones if their teacher bans them. Kids like to break rules. They won't think it is as cool to use their phone secretly because they can use them. If the teacher bans phones kids are going to find a way to use them. Some kids are just going to use them because they are ban but if they were not ban they would not of used them. It also teaches them responsibility because if they get caught on something they are not suppose to be on they will get into big trouble. Most jobs students will get involve technology. By letting them use their phone at school is making them more responsibly for a job.

Kids absolutely should be able to use their phone in school.

Having cell phones in school can be very helpful in many ways. The students can contact their parents or call 911 in an emergency. Kids are more likely to study or take notes if they can do it on their phone. Kids are going to use their phone if you ban it or not. They are always going to find a way to do it, so why not just let them use it? Cellphones in school are not hurting anyone.
