Mobile phones are distracting There are so many times I have seen my classmates play with their phones in class.There are people using them all the time and teachers are so dumb that they cannot see it.I have seen groups outside where two people in the group talking were told to shut up so that they could all enjoy their phones in silence.
Every single person in my school has a cell phone of some description, and if they do not they are ostracized by the other kids as if they had some sort of disease.
I have personally seen the look of horror and bewilderment of other children when one child claims to not have a mobile phone of any kind.
The situation I saw was with a young girl who had Aspergers and literally could not see what the big deal was.
Ironically, a lucid and intelligent adult would have come to the same conclusion that the girl with high functioning autism did, but the children tortured her for days until her mother took her from school when she noticed chunks of her hair were missing.
This, however, is also possible without a cellphone, as schools have phones and any important information can be conveyed through it.
Cellphones can be seen as a means employed by students for cheating during examinations.
They can simply text anyone and ask for assistance.
Not only this, it can give rise to after school gang activities and be misused in many ways, like making prank calls just for fun.
I do not believe that cell phones should be allowed in schools.
I think they are distracting and make people okay with doing nothing.
