Cell phones in school
The issue I’m discussing is cell phone use in school. I think cell phones should be allowed in schools. I think it should be allowed because in my opinion I don’t think it is that much of a problem, as long as you have boundaries and rules. I think this will help with fewer issues in schools over cell phone being taken away, and lost by the teachers. The use of cell phones in school can be beneficial to both students and parents. A lot of times there is school emergencies, family emergencies or even work emergencies. A child can contact their parents to let them know what is going on if there is an emergency in school. Also, the parent can contact their child if there is something happening in the family. If something goes wrong at work and someone’s hours need to be changed, then the boss can contact their employee which may also be a student, by texting them and letting them know. If students were not allowed to use phones during school, they would not have any idea of what is going on if there is an emergency. Apps and instant internet access are great advantages for most students with smart phones. Apps can help students get to things quicker, and they can also help save things that cannot be saved on the internet. Having instant internet access can make it easier to search things in a short period of time. They can both also be quicker to get to then a computer.
