MOBILE PHONES SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN SCHOOL Good afternoon, today we will be talking to you about why mobile phones should be banned during school time and how it effects your education. Many of us these days have mobile phones. We often see teenagers talking on their phones, or, just as often, texting. It has become a part of everyday life, and a part of our society. Many teenagers and pre-teens get mobile phones as early as possible, sometimes younger than the age of 12. It is encouraged socially, especially among teenagers, to have a phone, and many teenagers get phones just because of peer pressure. Mobile phones can be very useful, for communication between kids and parents (especially teenagers that can’t drive), and can be very important in emergencies. But mobile phones can also be used for less important reasons, such as excessive amounts of texting. One big issue concerning mobile phones and teenagers is the use of mobile phones in school. Many teenagers believe that mobile phones should be allowed in school or during class. But during school time some students use their phone inappropriately to take photos or videos of other people. Things like this can lead to blackmail and can upset other students, this is one reason why we think mobile phones should not be allowed to be used in school. When teenagers bring their phone to school and forget to turn them off or silence them: it distracts the student with the cell phone it distracts other students it distracts the teacher no one is be able to focus on the lesson its rude to use a cell phone during class
