Students should definitely have a cell phones in school for an array of reasons but they should have it on silent if not off. Students need their cell phones in case they have an emergency and the closes phone is in the path of danger you just reach in your pocket or book bag to get your cell phone and call 911 and then tell an adult. Students should not misuse the privilege of having a cell phone if they do not necesarily need it. A middle school in Hebei, China has banned students from carrying and using mobile phones on campus, using metal detectors to search students. We have the privilege to be able to carry around our cell phones instead of being searched in order to check we don’t have them.
