Mobile cell phones should be limited in certain schools

Mobile phones can be an issue in certain schools. Mobile phones should be banned in elementary and middle schools. However, phones during class in high school and college should be up to the teacher, whether or not to have them. As youths get older, they become more responsible on how they use their phones.Elementary schools shouldn’t have phones' period. The kids shouldn’t have a phone that young. They don’t need it for many reasons. Parents know where they are any ways. There is always an adult around. In case of an emergency, the school can contact the parents. There is also a phone in the office and every classroom. Kids that young are easily distracted and those having a phone will make it worse. If they have a phone, they won’t do their class work or homework. They are not as social because they are too distracted with the latest Smartphone. Kids wouldn’t have as much fun with their friends that are over.

Middle schools should have phones either during school hours. Middle schoolers can be a little active. When you have a cell phone, they are more likely to cheat during a test.
