Should students be allowed to use cellphones in school?

Postby Brunswick-upon-Raritan » Sat May 23, 2020 7:01 pm

I recently found out that young people these days are allowed to use their cellphones in their schools.
Obviously, I was appalled. What kind of degenerate teacher allows that sort of thing? Is there no such thing as discipline anymore?
I ask you, would you want YOUR child using a phone during class?

In school or during class?

You asked two different questions.
Venicilian: wow. Jesus hung around with everyone. boys, girls, rich, poor(mostly), sick, healthy, etc. in fact, i bet he even went up to gay people and tried to heal them so they would be straight.
The Parkus Empire: Being serious on NSG is like wearing a suit to a nude beach.
New Kereptica: Since power is changed energy over time, an increase in power would mean, in this case, an increase in energy. As energy is equivalent to mass and the density of the government is static, the volume of the government must increase.

No phone should be visible in the school.

Why not? I can understand during a class but otherwise, why not?

You want perverts in school operating through kids' phones?

It's illegal to upload unauthorized footage of minors without their parents' consent, allowing students to use their phones in school jeopardizes the privacy of thousands of individuals.

In class, no. In school at large, yes.

Although parents could just do a blanket ban on an individual child's phone use too.

That is literally why students aren't allowed to use their phones in school, though. It's too unsupervised.

Given the prevalence of school shootings? Yeah. I'm pretty okay with letting the kids have phones. Parents as a whole may not care enough to force something to be done about the gun mess, but at least the kids can tell their parents they love them anyway before they go.

I'm appalled any parent would want to send their kid to a school where they would basically have their whole identity exposed to the Internet. And students absolutely should be disciplined for using unauthorized electronic devices in school.

It is legal to photograph or videotape anything and anyone on any public property, within reasonable community standards. As I am allowed to take photos in a public park that may include children and upload that to my facebook account, I would think that students taking pictures of other students would fall under the same guideline, at least in public schools.

Yup.

I mostly mean if a parent says 'no phone for you, kid' then that's that.

Mobile Phones aren't a human right or anything.
