High schools everywhere constantly deal with the issue of cellphones in school. Are they useful? Are they a hindrance? Is there any actual educational value to them in school?

Cellphones have been a huge problem for students and teachers. Distracted learning is not efficient learning, and it seems cellphones are a constant distraction.

I sat down with some students at GNA to ask their opinion on cellphones in school:

 

What is your opinion on cellphones being used in school? 

Student A:

I believe that cellphones being used in schools is idiotic. There should be a cell phone policy that is actually enforced on a daily basis. When I am sitting in class trying to learn, my classmates have their earbuds in and are texting away while the teacher is trying to teach. To educate us. It is a real shame and there should be something done about this. 

Student B:

It is a disgrace and disrespectful to their teachers. Students are here to learn, not text. Having cellphones in school and students constantly on them does nothing to prepare them for the real world. You cannot sit on your phone at work. There is a cell phone policy in place at GNA; however it needs to be stricter. Usage of cell phones should result in confiscation, suspension, and even fine for the parents. 

Student C:

I find that having cellphones in school causes pointless drama and fights throughout the school every day. And the word of things spreads too fast. It makes me very angry. There is a lot of false information that goes around because people send out messages to the entire school before they have the full and correct story. It causes problems for teachers, students, parents, and the news stations.
