Should Cell Phones Be Allowed In School ?

Should Cell Phones Be Allowed In School
Okay, we can simply say Yes' cell phones should be allowed in school, or go the other way by simply saying 'NO' What would students need a cell phone for?

In any way, that would never fill you in, so we'll bring different factors into this debate and then reach a consensus on the correct answer.

For a start, there is no doubting the benefits the human race has enjoyed since the invention of the cell phone.

Also in this era that educational technology is passively wiping away the traditional teaching methods, we can perfectly understand the reason why two-thirds of students own a cell phone.

If you're a student reading this, then the chances are higher that you are reading it from your own device and not a parent's.

This is one of the benefits students get to enjoy because they have access to a cell phone. Let's see others

Reasons Why A Student Needs A Cell Phone


1.The cell phone relieves you of the stress that comes with going to the library to search for books that may not be there. Students can now access and download loads of book directly to their mobile from websites like www.b-ok.org pdfdrive.net and other online bookstores.

2.Websites like Google that can be used for online research is available on their cell phone.

3.A student can as well connect with friends or educative groups such as Innovative Students

4.Staying updated with latest happenings by logging onto a news website is easier from a mobile cell phone.

Those are the reasons why a  healthy percentage of parents do not shudder at the thought of granting their child access to a cellphone. We love that too!

However, amidst all these benefits, are a lot of dangers risked when a student is allowed to step into the school setting with a cell phone.

Here's one

Two teens in Quebec used a cell phone to secretly film a teacher yelling in class. They posted the video on YouTube and other social media paltforms. Soon the video went viral and did a lot of damage to the teacher's profile.

The truth is that opinions vary with regard to this growing syndrome - Allowing cell phones in school.

So, we have come up with four reasons why a school is not the right place for students to take their cell phones to. It's safe to suggest that a cell phone should be banned in the school esp college.

Why Cell Phones Should Be Banned In School



1.Cheating In Examination 



We do not know of any other stress-free and cheap medium that facilitates cheating in exams, other than the cell phone.

Answers to test questions can be sent via SMS or personal social media account right in the examination hall while Google provides the student with access to almost all the answers to the test question.

When a student learns to depend on this cunny means of passing an examination, he is less inclined to pay attention to his studies. That's a lose-lose situation for everyone - the student, teacher, and parent.
This also is the reason why a cell phone is among the items banned by Jamb for 2018.


2.Cyber-bullying


This is the practice of sending threatening messages or spreading a harmful rumor about a fellow student via an electronic means of communication.

A student who has an ill feeling towards another student could use the social media platform available on the cell phone to spread untrue information about the person.
This distracts a student from the major purpose of being in school -which is to learn.



3.Stealing & Pickpockets

Is this a problem?

Yes, we think so.

When a student is tempted to steal another's cell phone, simply because they see that it has perhaps more features than theirs or is more expensive, it becomes a real problem. 30% of school pickpockets involve student's cell phones and this can totally be avoided if cell phones are banned in school

Also, a student who has no cell phone seems abject and faces the challenge of focusing on his studies while other students move around with their cell phones.


4.Distraction And Failure In Education


Cell phones are huge distractions to a child's education because of the other features available on a modern cell phone (smartphone).

Several things can be done using a cell phone texting, playing games, listening to music, browsing the internet and social networking which are distractions on its own and of all places the school setting.

Students could also use any free time in school to attend to their smartphones instead of their books.
    60% of examination failure has been attributed to the use of a cell phone, therefore this medium of distraction should not be harbored in the school setting.


    5.Moral Decadence

    With pornography, gambling and other social vices often painted as harmless on the internet and social media, students who get in touch with these are likely to promote it to fellow students who are also likely going to want to give it a try.

    This is done without the notice of teachers and parents and because peer pressure is powerful in this regard, the end result is more harm to our society.

    Rounding Up


    We already mentioned that the cell phone has become an integral part of life in this tech-driven century and definitely serves various purposes.

    If the young student is taught to see the cell phone for what it really should be - a learning tool, then they can use it effectively while they are away from school or under close supervision while in the school setting.


    Now your turn to join the debate
    Do you think its right to use the cell phone in school?

    YES OR NO?

    Don't Leave Without Commenting, We Would Love To Know Your View.
