Most school administration regards cell phone use as disturbing and entertain, and have implemented policies that prohibit using them on school campus. Cell phones are a disturbance in school. Student can use text message for cheating in tests. Students are not able to give full attention to the lesson. If a student cell phone rings in class, it totally disrupts the class for a considerable period of time. Many cell phones are also camera phones. Camera phones present a of invasion of privacy in the schools. One of the best ways we can protect the privacy of every student is to ban cell phones from school during the school day.
Students need to be paying attention on classroom instruction without the distractions of cell phones. While cell phones are very convenient and a common part of everyday life, cell phones, for the most part, are a entertainment everywhere. Have you ever been on a bus or plane and somebody is carrying on a loud personal conversation? At a school, the distraction may be even greater than in a public place. For many teachers one of the biggest concerns about including cell phones in schools is that they will be used improperly.It is very necessary to ban the use of cell phone in school to make a healthy and suitable atmosphere.
Students do not need cell phones during school hours. Many schools now providing telephone in the classroom also as if there is any emergency students can use it. I don’t really understand why some parents are so adamant about being able to contact their kids at school at a moment’s notice. Teachers have a difficult job as it is. They don’t need to be dealing with kids having cell phones going off, secretly messaging each other, going on the Internet, and taking photos and video not to mention the possibilities for cheating.
Students will message each other all the time during class, and there are times when the teachers won’t even notice! Are we now slaves to our technology? I still remember the student will be found in his/her respective classroom. If the student needs to call home they only need to go to the main office or guidance to contact a parent or guardian. Most calls home are not for emergencies, they are for simple communication that does not need to be done during school. It must have been a miracle that I made it through that time without the need of a cell phone. The majority of the calls, if not all, will be used in idle chatter. Their current uses are for distraction, social interaction, and lewd photography. And let’s not ignore the parents who would call students during class to talk about non-emergency issues. If it is truly an emergency call the school main number and have the child brought to the office. There should be no cell phones in the schools.
There is not any need of cell phone in the school. While cell phones are an ease, however they don’t belong in the school with our students. Students will use them in the class apart from the rules. It will be a disturbing convenience benefiting only the students to talk to anyone. If there is a true emergency the parent only needs to call the school and the cell phones in the school will be a total disruption, they will be a good cheating device.
There is no difference between looking through your phone and reading a note passed in class. School is for learning. Students will take it for granted and answer calls during the class. It leaves no hope for the classroom teacher. Whether the phone is on vibrate or not, it still makes no difference because the youngster will be continuously looking at the phone in expectation of a call or a text message. Text messaging turned out to be as popular as e-mail and is universal in many students’ hands, and can caused total disturbance in the classroom.
Distractions such as cell phones don’t belong in school. There is no need for cell phones in the schools, just as there was no need for them in the past. In the case of a emergency, schools have in place systems that protect the children and notify the parents. It is the parents who are permitted them a cell phone. As a result they will always be available at a moment notice. Cell phones in school are an unnecessary disturbance that take time away from teachers and can be a resource in cheating. Text messaging is an epidemic. I’m sorry to tell you this, but if you think students will not be texting each other while a teacher is teaching, you’re totally wrong. Whether parents feel it is necessary to have cell phones in the schools or not, it is still a disturbance to their children’s education. It is a harm to our children to allow cell phones during in the schools. Cell phones have become a gigantic problem. Kids text during class, leading to cheating, or coordination of other “bad” activities.
