We should be able to use cell phones in school because your parents can call you/text you about important information such as your doctor appointments,etc. or it's a great way to organize yourself by using this kind of system to have a planner on your phone and if there is some kind of emergency at school, you can contact a parent/guardian about it.
in case of emergencies, to contact parents to pick you up after school, to use tools like the camera and the calculator, to communicate with other classmates to update them on homework or something, and maybe use the Internet for something if you have a smartphone. I just edited cause there's 20 secs left and I'm a rebel!!!!!
There are no "Why's", Only "Why not's". Cell phones don't really provide any help in school. People made it through school without them before, you can do it now. Only in emergencies, should cell phones be used.
Cell phones are strictly not allowed in school because most kids use it for cheating. Ya maybe you and a few others would use it as a calculator or planner, but most teachers catch kids cheating while testing or texting while the teacher is talking.
I think cell phones are good with all the school shootings. You can always call the police or your family to say your ok.. I think you should only use them at break, lunch , passing periods, before and after school .. Never in the class room only in a emergency ....
