Hi friends! We all know the benefits of a mobile phone. Although it is useful, it should not to be in schools because School is a place where we learn how to read & write and become a good citizen. The mobiles should not be held in children hands specially in school because their attention goes towards it and they can't study attentively. Teachers also should not keep the mobile in school because they can't teach the students perfectly. That's my opinion!

Mobile phones should be strictly prohibited in the school. Because it is not useful in the school. Students come at school for study not for chatting on mobile. They also misuse the mobile. So it should be prohibited strictly in the school.

No, we should not allow celphone in schools because they are electrical items. First of all we should not allow children to touch electric wires or items.

No. Mobile phones are not necessary for school students. It will be a dangerous tool for the student when we analyse the latest incidents happened in Delhi school. The reason showing by the advocates for mobile phone that the parents can contact any time their wards. It is better to have the school telephone number by all the parents than to purchase a mobile phone to their wards and paying the huge bill.

In my opinion mobiles should not be allowed in schools because it is very distractive for the students. Also the students keep showing it off to their friends which develops a sense of inferiority complex among the students. I think if children are given cellphones they should also know when it has to be used and how so it does not harm them in any possible way. This is for everyone-" if you are getting all the facilities needed please do not missuse them."

Mobiles are a nuisance in schools when they are wrongly used. Students have high pitched ringtones of the latest songs which is very disturbing when a lecture is going on. Plus with cam phones and video in phones etc. the student will be interested in his/her cell than the lecture.

There are two sides to the issue. Mobile phones is a huge distractor of children's education so definitely mobiles should not be used in the classroom but outside of class there should not be a problem. It can be a source of safety and security. Mobile phones can allow the children to contact their parents and let them be aware of any safety fears. As long as the children learn in the classroom and use the phones at recess, lunch or during periods then I am all for mobiles being allowed in the classroom. However that being said if children starts using it during lessons then mobile phones should be banned at schools as learning is the number one priority. Principals at schools should ensure that phones are switched off during classes and not being used at any time otherwise necessary action should be followed for first time offenders etc. detention (for 1000 years! Ha Ha! Na Just kidding!). or smashing up confiscated mobile phones so that children will learn to take resonsibility and know that there are boundaries and consequences they must not cross. DO NOT USE MOBILE PHONES IN CLASSROOMS!

Actually, I think mobiles should not be used in schools because they give a shining behaviour. for eg: some says 'shining maar rahi hai'. But sometimes I think that mobiles are necessary. It keeps in contact the child with the parent that is what I want to tell.

I don't think school children need mobiles. At the school level, children have to learn to be disciplined. Allowing them to use mobile phones will make them used to the luxury and only spoil them. It is unnecesary because schools provide a protected environment. Parents needn't worry about their kids' safety that much.

No, mobiles should be strictly prohibited in schools. It is very dangerous to use mobiles in school. Using of mobiles in schools causes loss of concentration in studies and other extracurricular activities. Taking mobiles to school also leads in misusing of mobiles.

I think this is a thing in which the parents of the student have to give attention. If they won't allow their student to use mobile phone in the classroom then this problem can be totally eradicated. Ultimately if you see then one can know how much of loss a student is suffering.
tushar
27-Nov-2005
yes mobiles should be allowed in the schools but they should be limited to some restrictions like the students should keep their moblies in silent mode and do not use them in the class when the teacher is teaching them. Also school can take some money for the security of the moblies as this will add to their source of income.
Bhagya Laxmi

It is strictly parentís responsibility to keep mobiles away from the children. If it rings in the classroom it disturbs the whole class & sidetracks the students' attention, not only the mobile holderís. In my perspective it should be stringently forbidden at school-level. If parents want to know the safety of their children they can use school phone.

In my openion it's not right to use cells in school places. Actually, I think mobiles should not be used in schools because they give a shining behaviour. for eg: some says 'shining maar rahi hai'. But sometimes I think that mobiles are necessary. It keeps in contact the child with the parent that is what I want to tell. Students come at school for study not for chatting on mobile. They also misuse the mobile. So it should be prohibited strictly in the school.

In my opinion mobile phones should not be allowed to be used by the students in school, instead schools should make a provision and set up local call phones , rather known as coin phones, which these days are very common in the towns & cities which would facilitate the children to make use of them during emergencies also mobile phones with cameras, ringtones, dialler tones would distract the students and as well as the teacher's attention in the class, I disagree with Preethi and would rather recommend using local coin set up phones in case of emergencies in school.

Mobile phones shoould not be allowed in school. It is a big distraction and moreover children don't need them. Even if children have them they ought not to take them to school as it can cause a lot of disturbance and does not only distract that person but also others and they all may get addicted to it.

As I am a prefect of a school I think that mobile phones should be allowed but only if it is necessary for someone. And the student who is having mobile phone in school must have his/her parents note and their signature.

My opinion is, there are two sides of everything. We want to give better facility to our children so that they can get knowledge about the new and updated technology, but if our children do not understand our intention and do the wrong use of cellphone then it is our duty to help them understand our point of view.

Well in my opinion mobile phones should definitely not be allowed in schools. School is a temple of education and such things do nothing but distract them from studies. Instead of having an interest in studies they remain involved in such insignificant trites. Therefore mobile phones should not be allowed in schools.

All the technological innovations are basically there to make life more easy. At the same time, they can create negative impact on individuals using them or society as a whole, if abused . School going children, being too young and inexperienced would not be able to apprehend fully the fall out of a technological innovation, like mobile, hence, it would not be advisable to encourage them to use mobile at all.

YA! I think the usage of mobiles should be allowed in the schools because everyone from kids to adults in United States uses cell phones. Everywhere, cell phones should be used and it is good to have - for emergency and for everything.

Hi Friends. Don't you think that mobiles are really necessary in our school? Just think about it once. A mobile can come handy when someone is not feeling well. You may say that there are public booths. But think if there nothing like that near the school and also if our school phone is dead. Just think about it and you will feel that mobiles are really necessary.It also helps us to protect us from others. So I say that mobiles should be allowed in the school.

Mobiles shold be allowed in school. There's no harm in bringing mobiles to school. If a person actually wants to misuse the facilities of mobile, then he/she would misuse it in any way. If not in school then outside school. Nowadays students come in cars. If they are left early from school, they can call up their parents to send the car. Moreover if a student wants to go out directly from school with their friends, then they can inform their parents by calling them. In short, mobile is useful and not at all bad.

The latest technologies in mobile telephony enable students to use cellphones as handy knowledge devices.This will enrich and enhance their learning.Mobile phones also enable parents to keep in touch with their children and to track their movements.But then there is a need to keep a close watch on it`s usage. If certain students show off their cell phones, then those whose parents cannot afford them may suffer from an inferiority complex. A mobile phone often poses a hurdle as it diverts a student`s attention .

I think mobile phones should be banned for both students and teachers. If it is banned only for students then it is injustice on the part of the students because teachers easily disturb the class by attending all personal phone calls thereby disturbing concentration and interest of the student to learn the subject. If communication is so necessary for teachers then they can call on the 1 rupee coin booths which is there inside every school then why bring a mobile phone and cause unnecessary disturbances in the school atmosphere.

One of my relative had a mobile and was really addicted towards it. Now, she cannot live without the mobile.

Use of mobile phone in school should not be allowed. Students come here for learning and in the presence of mobile phone their attention is always diverted towards other things. When you are talking and listening to others then how can you learn?. Therefore there is no link between mobile and school.

I personally feel cell phones shouldn't be allowed in any school since it is a distraction to children's education. As in my school I see people in class, hallways, and during their lunch periods using their electrons. It does show a bad look especially when there are vistors that come to see your school. If students decide to bring a cell phone to school it should be off during your school hours. Without no exception. Its just a matter of respect and the child's expression towards their education.

I do feel that students should not carry mobiles to schools. Many parents give mobiles to their children in order to keep in touch with them. But this facility is being misused by the students. The mobiles with cameras, MP3s really distract them and whenever they are in class they start using these facilitites and will not concentrate on the lessons.

Mobile phones should not be allowed in school at any cost as the children will only chat and not study and while the classes are going on if the mobile rings they will go out of the class and chat with their friends and children under 18 years should not use mobile phones in school as it is extremely bad for their ears as it increases the bacteria in the ear.

With the passage of time and with advancement in science and technology, moral values have taken a back seat. These days students do not have any respect for their parents, teachers and classmates. And mobile phones act as a catalyst in it. It is being exploited as a status symbol by the certain class of society causing heartburn for those who cannot afford them. Hence they should be banned in schools and colleges.

Its upto you to decide whether you want to misuse it or use it for good. If you decide to misuse it you will do that anywhere not only in school however if you decide to use it in the right way it should be allowed in school. Moblies should be allowed in schools but should be used in break and after school not during class. As long as we set a limit, everything is cool.

Phones should be allowed in school. It teaches a student to abide rules and instill moral values in them. Think about it. Are we just goin to let this children be kept away from technology? Think outside the box. Do not take the easy way out and ban it. It is a useful tool of communication. Allow hanpdhones in school by adhering to rules and regulations of course.

S.C.P.W
15-Apr-2007
This question can be looked from 2 angles: Handphones should be banned from school because students cannot concentrate on their studies. Sometimes, the teacher does not even know that the student is using their handphone in class and while the teacher is teaching,the student is talking. So, why do they even bother to go to school? Handphones should be allowed in school because you really need it in a case of emergency or to call your parents for some reason.

According to me, MOBILE PHONES R BOTH NECESSARY AND UNNECESSARY. Some parents say that they want to know were their children are. But let me ask one thing? Are those parents not sure about there children's loyalty? But at the same time students who are staying in hostels may not always be able to use the hostel's phone. So they need a mobile. also..children who are away from parents also need it..don't they?

I think mobiles are necessary for students. The student that I mean is above 14 years old because they can contact their parents if they miss their transport to go home. I know we can use school public phone but how about the student who takes two buses to go home? how would they contact their parent if they miss their second transport? Hence mobiles is necessary for students.
