Should teachers be allowed mobile phones in the classroom?

Teachers usually have families and if they get a call in the middle of class it would be something important. Teachers need phones in class supposing something comes up. A teacher would never forget their class and talk for hours unless it is something important.

The school also has a phone. If it's really important, the family can always call the school and ask for the teacher.

But notice how that would cause the teacher to leave the class. It is possible but it is much easier for the teacher to have it with her/him. Teachers would know when and how to use a phone in school better than students too.

Actually, in most school CHILDREN are not allowed MOBILES. (we are not baby goats, we are children). Also, in a family emergancy the workplace (reception deak ) could be contacted.

Everyone is forgetting the fact that the family member should probably call the hospital or 9-1-1 for an emergency before they call their family member, and either way, they shouldn't call them in an emergency anyway... They should wait to get to the hospital, be treated, and then call and say what happened and that their fine. If they just call their family before or after the emergency the teacher would leave the classroom anyway, but that means they shouldn't have cell phones because if they would wait to get to the hospital and be treated, they can call in time to the reception desk, and the teacher would either way be allowed to leave... you people are looking at this in the perspective of a middle schooler.

Sure, but then give students the same rights...if teachers have families, don't students have families?

What is fair for one side is fair for all!

But, why would a student do any different? What if there was an emergency and the student needed to go right away? Are you suggesting an emergency for a teacher should be different than an emergency for a student? I think not!

They should be allowed to use moblie phones in the classroom because what if they are expecting a call from someone during class time? I have a teacher that whenever a his phone goes off he picks it up and answers it and usually its important.

very good you know, keep it up ..!

Easy come, easy go

That's just how you live, oh

Take, take, take it all

But you never give

Should've known you was trouble

From the first kiss

Had your eyes wide open

Why were they open?

[Pre-Chorus:]

Gave you all I had

And you tossed it in the trash

You tossed it in the trash, you did

To give me all your love is all I ever asked

'Cause what you don't understand is...

[Chorus:]

I'd catch a grenade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Throw my hand on a blade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I'd jump in front of a train for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

You know I'd do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, I would go through all this pain

Take a bullet straight through my brain

Yes, I would die for you, baby

But you won't do the same

No, no, no, no

Black, black, black and blue

Beat me 'til I'm numb

Tell the devil I said "Hey" when you get back to where you're from

Mad woman, bad woman

That's just what you are

Yeah, you smile in my face then rip the brakes out my car

[Pre-Chorus:]

Gave you all I had

And you tossed it in the trash

You tossed it in the trash, yes you did

To give me all your love is all I ever asked

'Cause what you don't understand is...

[Chorus:]

I'd catch a grenade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Throw my hand on the blade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I'd jump in front of a train for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

You know I'd do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, I would go through all this pain

Take a bullet straight through my brain

Yes, I would die for you, baby

But you won't do the same

[Bridge:]

If my body was on fire

Oh, you watch me burn down in flames

You said you loved me, you're a liar

'Cause you never ever ever did, baby

[Chorus:]

But, darling, I'd still catch a grenade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Throw my hand on the blade for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I'd jump in front of a train for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

You know I'd do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, I would go through all this pain

Take a bullet straight through my brain

Yes, I would die for you, baby

But you won't do the same

No, you won't do the same

You wouldn't do the same

Oh, you'd never do the same

Oh, no no no

Teachers should be allowed to have cell phones in the classroom, in case ther is an emergengy within the school, or in their personal lives where they need to contact or be contacted emedietly.

As students are trying to study if the teacher gets bored he/she should be able to use their phone to entertain themselves..!

Teachers could spend hours on thephone and the whole class would waste the lesson listening to their teacher on the phone.

Well then that is one pathetic teacher. Every teacher knows they would have to hurry up with the call (unless it is something important) because i class is waiting for them. ONE WORD: priorities

I don't think so because my parents send me to school to learn, not listen to a teacher lolly gag on the phone. teachers can have phones but they need to only use it for important things or emergencies. what do you guys think? /: |

they should NOT be allowed to use their cell phones because students arent allowed to use theirs, the kids are there by choice and they dont get paid, but the teachers do get paid, therefore i think teachers shouldnt be allowed but students should.

Kids are their by law.

they should NOT be allowed to use their cell phones because students arent allowed to use theirs,

Students cant use theirs because it disracts them from learning.

Kids are their by law.

Granted there may not be many options depending on where a family resides, they still have a choice in where the child gets an education even if its homeschooling. If enough families find out that their child isn't getting an adequate education because their teacher talks on the phone during class, they could get rather upset about how their tax money is being spent.

Students cant use theirs because it disracts them from learning.

In that same sense, teachers shouldn't be able to use theirs because it could distract them from teaching.

no teacher should not be allowed mobile phones they loss their concentration in the class some1 is calling so the teacher also get distracted n the student also

| Side: They should not be allowed to

If students can't, teachers shouldn't either. They should be allowed in the same way as the pupils: when they expect an emergency call. Teachers should never answer their mobile in class unless it is an emergency. Otherwise they'd only set the wrong example.

NO. Why should they get that priviledge. Besides, they are there to work, not phone people up. THey can be contacted via the reception desk in an emergancy. They choose to be there, we DO NOT and we aren't allowed them.

(However, we got to sing happy birthday to our spainsh teacher's mum. THat's not the point.)

The reason why students still bring their phones to school is because their Teachers still have them. We all know how teens are, hell im one of them... And i know that when a teacher answers a text or a phone call that could be important, but it tempts the students to bring their cell phones. If a student bringing a cell phone interrupts a learning environment, then a teacher bringing a cell phone will disrupt at least 3x more then a student would. Everyone looks to their teachers for help, Wether they like it or not. Everyone receives help and follow their teacher. If a teacher brings a cell phone, why wouldn't a student follow them and bring theirs? Teachers should not, it has the same effect on teachers as it does students.

| Side: They should not be allowed to

Eveif the teacher's get important "family emergencies" they still should not get phones because the students can have emergencies too...

First, all camps should not make general conclusions that; All teachers would be ineffective with cellphones and that cellphones would not affect their teaching habits.

Every person, in this case teachers, is totally different to that of the others, however this is my contention or perhaps also a question; what of the two should be disciplined a lazy teacher or an effective teacher, of course the first one, now let us attach it to this topic" should the teachers be allowed to use cellphone" because there are two kinds of teachers, the first one will become even more worse while using it and the other being unaffected even while using it but a law cannot be approved stating that all lazy teachers are pervaded to use cellphones only those who are effective are allowed" this is illogical because if one teacher is not allowed all should follow in such a way that equality can be seen. One cannot interview all teachers and delineate their personality whether they are good or bad so that they may be allowed to bring such gadgets, then referring to the first contention if all are allowed then bad teachers would be even more worse fir their focus would be different and if only good teachers are allowed, then inequality issues will arise, So to make an egalitarian society let none of them bring it.

However this should not be strictly so one cant use his or her gadgets while teaching but for emergency purpose it can be.

It depends, if children/teens are allowed to use their phones without punishment, teachers should be able too. Also teachers should be allowed to have their phones on for emergencies, but arent allowed to ever take it out within the childrens view.

I strongly believe that teachers should not have cell phones in class. Teachers are paid to teach children not call or text on a phone. Then teachers give children many consequences for texting then the teachers go and text. Is that really fair. Yes i know they are the teacher and if theres an emergency but the kids need it in an emergency too.... Just sayin

They should not be allowed to use cell phones in the class room because the teacher might be hanging on the phone and texting her friends while students are confused and cannot solve their problems. Teachers are just like students only the difference they teach and students learn other than that there is no difference between both. Teacher should be allowed to use their phones on emergency situation such as calling 911, etc. If teachers used cellphones students get curious and they use cell phones, and can't pay attention in class. If teacher uses cell phone in class that might be distraction to students so i believe they shouldn't be allowed to use cellphone except on emergency calls.
