Is it justified to ban cell phones in schools?

Contents

Silent mode: Is silent mode okay or should they be turned off?

Yes

  • Silent cell phones won't distract anybody There will be no disruption if the students are required to keep their cell phones in their pockets and not use them for calling or texting except in an emergency. This would be more convenient for calling for a ride after school or making a phone call if an emergency happens at school.


No

  • Most students ignore rules to silence cell phones. Even though students are required to switch their cell phone to silent mode and are not allowed to use it, the majority of them just ignore the rules. Silent mode is not off and most kids still use their phones.
