People in many schools regularly sneak around on their cell phones, trying to hide them from
teachers or administrators. Cell phones were originally against school rules. Honestly it makes a
lot of since for students not to be able to use their cell phones during school hours.
Cell phones should be banned in schools because they distract students, allow cheating in
Schools, and they can be dangerous.
Cell phones distract students in school. Whenever people text in class it gets other
people’s attention, which makes it hard for students to learn. Also if it goes off in class it can
cause the teacher to stop teaching and have everyones attention on that cell phone (Armstrong).
The evidence that has been given helps support this reason by proving that it can take away
education time if schools allow cell phones in school. If cell phones are allowed in schools
people will not do anything but text and stay on social networks (Armstrong). ...view middle of the document...
The evidence supports being against
cell phones in school because students will not learn anything when they can just go on the
internet and find the answers. It would be simple to take a picture of an answer key or another
test and send it to someone. If schools keep the rules of no cell phones there will barely be any
worry about that (Armstrong). This supports my reason because it would be simple to cheat on
something if students are able to use their phones. If kids can text during class then most kids are
willing to take that rule for advantage which means if kids can cheat they will (Armstrong). Most
of the time when you give kids an inch they will take a mile, which means if you gibe kids the
ability to use their phones they will not just use it for research.
Cell phones are dangerous. Cell phones can put off radiation, which means that cell
Phones can cause brain tumors or acoustic nueromas (Colipie). If students are allowed to use
their cell phone during school it will make it easier of a chance for kids to get some type of
cancer. A study has been shown that cell phones affect men’s sperm quality. It could affect
having a healthy baby (Colipie). That has nothing to do with school but cell phones are bad for
everyone and they can make some people quit caring about school because they are so addicted.
It’s a scary thing to know how easily a cell phone could be used for a bomb. You could use a cell
phone as a detonator or even to call in a bomb threat. This supports my reason because, cell
phones can be such a threat to schools and kids that some people would feel that their life is in
danger at school.
Cell phones can be such a big distraction that it can take away from kids education.
They easily can allow students to cheat by texting or sending people answers. If you think about
It cell phones can be a huge threat to school and everyone in it by being used as a bomb or a
bomb threat. Cell phones are great things for communicating, but many people don’t just use
them for communication and this is more than likely the reason they are banned in schools.
