No phone should be allowed in class, teachers who allow this are lazy teachers who do not work with their students as a collective group, because that takes effort and proper classroom management. There is no tenable reason for a student to be using a phone in the classroom.

Students and Cell Phones: Should cell phones be banned in school?

Some say cell phones are a very nice learning tool, which can be used to help facilitate the learning process. However, as an educator, I find cell phones are a negative distraction and feel confident in stating that the traditional classroom methods are better than studying on the Internet.

Cell phones as well as computers are very helpful in searching for some study related information. However, those students who take phones into the class do so not for study but for fun. They are likely to be playing games or chatting on the Internet when the teacher is lecturing. This type of behavior presents two problems: missing the information given in the class and disrespect to the teacher. And it is obvious that ringing phones during class, as well as talking on the phone during classes can be disturbing.

Lastly, cell phones can cause physical problems to students, as well as be a financial burden. For example, some experts say those who spend so much time on the small screen may get headaches, neck and upper back problems, and become shortsighted. Since cell phones are not a must and may even do harm to the students, they should be banned in schools.

I am a teacher, my students are not allowed to use phones in my class. They know I will take it off them and they will have to collect it at the end of the lesson. I have heard so many reason given for using phones in class I could write an essay.
