Should there be Social Rules about using Cell Phones in Schools?


Most of us have been through the gruelling thing known as school. Oh, I used to hate to go to school. I used to hate waking up so early just to catch the damn bus. I used to hate getting scolded by my teachers because I had yet again forgot to do my homework. I used to hate the pop-up quizzes and the sudden paper showing. But no matter how much I used to hate them, I still wish I could turn back times, to the good old days of hanging out with my friends without a worry in the world. I miss bunking some classes (quite a delinquent I was) just to sit on the roof with my friends and laughing about how we escaped from our classes. We weren’t so big upon carrying our phones to school, but nowadays one can’t live without it.


In today’s world there is a lot of progress in the technology about the mobile phones. Students should be made aware about its bad and good effects.

It should be allowed to use cell phones in schools as if there is any emergency case parents can easily inform their children. It should not be allowed to use during lectures but during break it should be allowed. And it also helps after school time as if the children have any transport problem they can inform their parents. Other than this if they have to stay at school after the school time is over for any type of preparation they can inform their parents. but there is some schools that let phones in because of the safety reasons.

I think that the students should be allowed to bring cell phones as long as they don’t disrupt class or distract themselves and not pay attention due to the phone, if that happens the teachers can just confiscate it and tell that particular student that he/she may not be able to bring a cellphone to school. I think students should have the right of bringing a cellphone to school because its theirs. They have responsibility. if they don’t cause trouble with it i think they should be allowed because also it is really convenient for emergencies and also the school phones might be out or they might not have access to one so it think bringing a cell phone is handy also you could use it to help for your classes like a calculator or as a flashlight.

It grows the mobility and flexibility between parents and their children. Why mobility and flexibility are so important? In case their parents are sick, or someone important for them is dead, or most cases, the students needs their parents help to bring something important that they forget, mobile phone is the first help to access, unless there is no even an account in their cell phone. Even if there may be a phone center in any school, yet it is still not as flexible as mobile phone.

If the case is about class disturbance, it does not mean that we have to completely ban them. we can just simply establish a helpful school policy. For example, during the class the teacher shall ask student to put their cell phone in front of the class, or near the teacher. Then, student will have no chance to make use it wrongly that may disturb the class session. So overall, cell phone helps student to shorten the range between their parents. Parents can still control them. Parents still have their capability to inform anything important.


One of the reasons kids shouldn’t be allowed to use their phones in school is because they can simply cheat during a test or get distracted by text messages or any social network.

Every school has different rules for cell phone use, but most allow students to bring phones so long as they turn them off during class. Parents should check the school’s rules and make sure your kids are mature enough to follow them. Generally speaking, kids should use their phones sparingly and only when permitted, before and after — but not during — the school day, such as when they need a ride, there’s an emergency, their plans change, or Mom or Dad calls. (And parents, although it can be tempting to text your kid during the day, resist the urge unless it’s truly urgent.)

Students have been known to misuse their cell phones at school. Students are known to use their phones for unsanctioned purposes, such as cheating, harassing teachers and videotaping it, taking pictures of other kids without their permission, and so on. Some violations have serious consequences and the evidence is all on the phone.

Many kids don’t see the consequences, and until they get the consequences, and they realize they were wrong. Another reason why cell phones are bad in school is that kids can post a picture and cause their teacher to get fired from work.

Restriction of cellphones make people more responsible. Today’s generation is highly dependent on technology. It affects their studies and concentration on work it stops us from achieving our goals, so social rules about the use of cell phones make people learn to live without cell phones. It is impossible to deliver best results in any institute if you are not fully focused and concentrated. Unrestricted uses of cell phones has affected the efficiency of school and workplaces. I see high school kids in a cafe, all busy with their phones and I feel sad for them. They will never know what it was like to laugh over a cup of coffee and a game of Uno, without posting a picture about it. I heard you can play that online, too. What a joke
