Cellphone’s use by students at school has become a controversial issue for the educational system in today's society. Most teachers and school administrators believe that cellphones are disruptive. Although school officials ruled policies to prohibit using the cellphones during class time, students carry them all the time in class. The text messaging, calling and even browsing the net during class time caused them to be distracted and be uninterested in learning. In other word, students who pay too much attention to their cellphones become uninterested in learning during class lectures and they would like socializing more than listening to the lectures .
Cellphones have become a distraction throughout schools. Students can’t seem to focus through their classes due to their phones going off from a snapchat notification or a text message. Teachers have repeatedly told students to “Put phones away” or that “Phones aren’t allowed” but phones are still being brought to class. There has been so many cases where parents have had to come to school and get phones from principals do to their kids not abiding by rules. Some parents insist that their child be able to carry around their phone during school hours, but teachers beg to differ.
Also cell phones can be costly and they may not get service in school so there is not really a point to use them in school. Obviously children are in school to learn. With cell phones there can be disruptions in the classroom such as the ringer going off. Even the vibrate can make enough noise for someone else to hear. Nevertheless even if it does not go off it is still a distraction because students are more interested in getting their text instead of focusing on the test or worksheet they are doing.
According to the school officials, the current rule allows students can have their cell phones turned off in the class which is not a good idea. So schools should ban students having cell phones at all in the class due to the following two reasons: Distraction and Cheating, having cell phones in elementary schools is a distraction. Because students aged between five to ten doesn’t have the potential to control their emotions, the most important thing for the students is to keep track of his lessons. But if students are allowed to have their cell phones turned off inside the classes there is still big chances that every student can have that is whenever the teacher started writing a lesson ... ... middle of paper ... ...dents neglecting education. How there will be temptations to cheat test.
For example, students should turn off their cell phones and put in their lockers. Also, students should be allowed to use cell phones before and after school and in case of emergency. Students should not be allowed to use cell phones in school because cell phones distract students, inappropriate usage, and have a negative influences on students. Cell phones distract students from learning. Some students use cell phones during class.
The office has a land line and all classrooms have at least one computer. If the option exists that students have cell phones in the class, but they are turned off, it is irrational to think that they would not use their phones if there were an emergency. Some may think that allowing the students to use their cell phones will help with morale, and these students will enjoy the class more if they have these freedoms. Some teachers may be tired of fighting the issue, and allow them to use their phones after in class work is done, which means that these children are not receiving a full class of instruction. Others may think that listening to music while doing in class work increases the students ' productivity.
Recently, the principal of my school has banned the use of cell phones during school hours. I agree with this policy because students could use their cell phones to cheat on tests, quizzes, or any other independent work. Another reason that I agree with this policy is, the students won’t be paying attention to the teacher if they are texting somebody else. The final reason is, cell phones are a distraction to other students who are trying to learn. Cells phones can be a huge problem later in life if the students don’t learn when to use them and when not to use them.
Bullying could also become a problem if students were allowed to use cell phones during school hours. In addition, cheating could also be made easier if students were allowed to have their cell phones turned on during school hours. Therefore, my principal’s decision is a decision that should be supported, and is definitely worth doing just that. If students were allowed to use cell phones during school hours, then they might as well be told that they don’t have to pay attention during class. There are so many things that can be done with cell phones that honestly, are much more interesting than what the teacher may be lecturing about, or the assignment that was given.
Many teachers believe that cell phones don’t belong in a classroom because there are several disadvantages. An example maybe a student who uses a cell phone in class has no intension in listening or paying attention to the teacher. This student has a short attention span who cares about socializing more than his/her education. Cell phones can be very disruptive; they can invade people’s privacy and can also be used as harassment or bullying. The usage of cell phones is creating a huge problem particularly when they are used in school.
Cells Phones Should Be Allowed In Schools Many have debated if cell phones should be allowed in school. Elementary through middle school should not be allowed to have cell phones at their access at all time because they are children who need to focus solely on school. Cells for them would be a distraction. As for high school students, they have different needs for a phone. One of the reason is because of emergencies.
