Mobile phones are inappropriate in schools. They take students’ attention away from their lessons and undermine discipline. Rules about having them turned off in lessons are impossible to enforce as students just put them in silent mode and secretly text or play games in the back of the class. There have been many cases of
students using mobiles to cheat in tests. Schools are for learning and anything which gets in the way of that should be banned
Mobile phones are a distraction from the real world, preventing children from
interacting with those around them. They also become fat and lazy, as phone use
crowds out healthy activity such as sport or playground games. What do you think about this?
