why cell phones should not be brought in the school?




No Being a student, I know that even if the phone is on silent mode, still a curiousity holds a part of your mind on the cell phone. Your mind keeps you bugging on and on what if someone called or someone messaged. This also distracts you from concentrating on your studies.
