Cell Phones in Elementary and High Schools




It is a debatable issue whether students of elementary and high schools should be allowed to keep cell phones during their school hours or not. Many people are in favor of letting the students use cell phones in the schools. In my point of view, students should not be allowed to use cell phones during their study hours. It is true that cell phone has become a need of the day in the previous few years and we have included it in our primary needs.
Everything has advantages and disadvantages which depend upon the necessity and usage. Cell phones has many advantages as they have made communication easy, they help in studies for example you can search about any topic on the internet, if you are finding some topics difficult you can get help regarding that on the internet, you can play such games which add up to your knowledge and vocabulary and so on and so forth.
If we talk about the current situation, cell phone has become a great distraction for children and adults. Cell phones give access to many of the things which are not as safe as they seem to be. Children in their teen age are not able to distinguish between good or bad things. With cell phones they get access to social media websites, different games, sending text messages and chatting with anybody without even knowing the person. It can bring about many dangers to them. They can fall a prey to many bad habits such as internet gambling, hacking, black mailing or cyber crime as they do not know the security measures due to their immaturity. They just take everything as fun because they are in the age where everything seems quite interesting and fun making.
If they would be given permission to use cell phones in school, they would not be paying attention to their studies. They would spend their study hours in using cell phones. The teacher cannot keep a check every time in the class room on students what are they doing with their cell phones as they have other responsibilities too. Yet, the teacher can keep a cell phone in the class room which can be used at the time of emergency. Otherwise, it will be adding up to the duties of the teachers where the actual essence and purpose of the school and teacher would be lost.
By keeping all these things in mind I think that students should not be allowed to use cell phones in the elementary and high schools.
