That shouldn't be allowed because in case of an emergency or something, students may not know how to unjam the service and they would not have a way to communicate during the emergency.
i agree with Ewelina because a lot of kids need there phones for emergency.
i disagree with Ms. Turner because I think phones should be allowed in school but instead of having a jammer I think kids wont be tempted to use there phone if they knew they can have it As long as there isn't any music playing or answering their phones when someones calling it will be fine.
It is too much of a distraction, there is no way students could pay attention if they have their phones.
but what is there is an emergency ? we need our phone for emergencies
I think they should be allowed because, if there is an emergency or if there is a storm and you cant get out and need to call your parents to come pick you up, I think phones should be allowed in school

This should be allowed because students are too distracted in class using their cellphones. By jamming the signal students will have no choice but to pay attention.
I disagree, it's the students responsibility to control the use of their phone.
I think they should be allowed in school because maybe your mom has to talk to you or your dad or if there is a emergency
i agree with christian because a lot of moms and dads like there kids having phones because they might need to get in touch with them.
it should be allowed because in case of an emergency, kids will be able to call for help. and even so there jammer, kids will still be able to call 911
no thats why they have teachers and staff members to do that
in case they are, lets say they are in a trailer class , they can call for help
teachers have cellphones and there are phones in classrooms so there is no need for personal cellphones
I don't think jammers on cell phones should be aloud because it's violating someone's property,& incase of an emergency we can't contact our parents or any one else.
you spelt allowed wrong
@patra keizer: You are right but 911 can be called even without service@ candice: but teachers can't go home with the kids so a phone is needed
cellphones should not be allowed because it's a distraction
its a distraction but we don't have lockers, so what happens when we go home
you can use it a your house obviously
i think phones should be allowed in school because if the students knew they could use their phones they wouldnt be so tempted to sneak things and would pay less attention to hiding it and more attention on the lesson
it would better without the jammer because what if the student gets an emergency call or text, but because that student has no signal, they wont be able to receive it
The cell jammer should be allowed in every classroom so students can't be distracted from their work. Although, the cafeteria shouldn't have it because it's like a free period where you can relax from school work and be on your phone.
Thats true but students should be able to get in contact with their parents anytime.
I agree with Mohamed and I don't agree with Raymundo
i agree with Cristian
I think cellphones should be allowed because if something happens in school you can be able to call your parents to let them know
I think it should be allowed because kids aren't pay attention in class and not doing there work. It only gets unlock once it is necessary
I agree 100 %. It is a major distraction!
I think it shouldn't be allowed because it is a major distraction. If they were allowed, possibly everyone would be on there phones instead of paying attention in school.
Yes i think so too, it is a huge distraction and makes students not want to learn. And that can affect them in the long run.
I disagree because we need our phones in case of emergency.
i disagree with both of these comments. having your phone out during class should not be tolerated BUT students need to be in contact with their parents at all times for important purposes
I understand that and I agree to that but when it is not in emergency, people they will get distracted by it.
Students are too attached to their cell phones and won't pay attention in class
I agree with This because students should have their phones in case of emergency.They should also have a jammer that they can turn on anytime.It would be helpful so they dont be distracted in class. Say if there was a storm and everyone had to eveacuate, the students have to contact their parents in order to tell them that they are safe.
Students don't always need to have their phones in case of an emergency. The teachers and staff members will call anyone you need to contact in case of an emergency.
Thats true, but say if your mom or dad or any of your family members go to the hospital or something bad happens to them, they will contact you so that you dont become worried when you cant find them at home.
There should not be a phone jammer because what if something bad happens and someone in our family has an emergency. We won't be able to react faster because there's a jam on our phones
I believe cellphones should be allowed. It is the students responsibility to control themselves to use their phone during class. I do agree that if the student is caught using their phone, they should have it taken away from them.
Werd Ubong I agree with you we should control it not play around with it
get out of here I use my phone all day
I agree with Mrs.Turner, phones can distract others from learning and make students not pay attention in class. And even if if there is an emergency you can ask the teacher and she will let you call for any important issue.
I think phones should be allowed in school for personal problems. Some people dont want to talk/tell a teacher about there "personal needs" it can sometimes be embarrassing
No it is not, just don't pay attention to anyone else
I think we need phones because what happened if some there is a family crisis and it was so important what do you do now or what happened if three is something wrong in school you need to let your parents know
real talk i need my phone 24.7
I agree with you Tumi, we need our phones for emergencies like that. The teachers should let us have our phones. they should let it be in a place where we can hear it if there is a big emergency.
I think phones should be allowed because if they knew that there were jammers, they will try to break it.
what do you mean break a jammer
Having a cell phone jammer is a manner of different opinions, to be completely honest with you it really doesn't matter to me whether or not you have a phone jammer, cause during school my phone is either in my bag or in my pocket untouched. Until the end of the day. Although my answer would be, yes a phone jammer would be a good idea, so that students who are constantly on their phones can pay attention in class, and pass their tests/ get a good grade on the regents when they are administered in the month of June.
Cellphones should definitely be allowed in school because its a fast and easy way to reach people you need or want to talk to,whether its an emergency or just a call you need to make. Every high school student should have their personal phone to make "that" call,(or text)..
I don't think that the cell jammer should be allowed because students should be allowed to contact their parents yeah i understand that if something goes wrong in school that the teachers must contact the parents but not all the time students want the teachers to know their business
I agree because what if happens in your family and your family needs to call you instead of you calling them.
I agree with you Andrea but teachers are going to be nosey and look at/take the phones it's school policy to do it if they have it out.
I agree with andrea because students have the right to keep their personal lives private and others will want to know something that doesn't concern them
I agree with Andrea, because if there are certain situations some students do not want anyone to know about. The faculty might not be able to help a student with a problem, but their own parents might, so they should have a way to be able to get in touch with them.
Phones are a horrible distraction and it can lower one's grade. People also use their smart phones to cheat on exams and a jammer would prevent this.
I agree with Caroline because cell phones allow people to cheat easily and they look for answers on the internet if the teacher isn't keeping an eye on them.
I agree with you ms turner cause if its a emergency fo home we could told so phones are important
i think the cellphone jammer isn't such a good idea.. many students could have any type of emergency durning anytime of the day and wont be able to contact their family members to get help and or be informed on important information..
I think phones should be in school because maybe they need to get in touch with there mom or dad or maybe something can happen after school and there by them selfs and they need help or they got hurt .. also to get to have there moms number just in case of anything ..
i also feel like maybe if they do let us use or phones we might not be on it as much but some people do take advantage of somethings .
i think the cellphone jammer is not a good idea because you can have an emergency in the day
But if you have an emergency you can go down to the office and notify who ever from there
I think it should be allowed because students be playing games on their phones in the middle of class
I think phones should be allowed but only to use at times like at lunch and maybe if you go to the bathroom to call your mom or your family to notify them on something
