Should West allow students to use their cell phones?

Do you think phones should be allowed in school?


Sorry, there was an error loading this poll.


West’s students are not allowed to have their cell phones with them during the school day. 

However, sometimes students can be seen sneaking around with their phones.    Kathryn Stran, a West 7th grader, says, “I have seen some people sometimes.” Sometimes students quickly check their phones during passing time or after recess. 

Perhaps kids are checking Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, or their Twitter accounts. But why do kids need to check their phones? Kathryn says” well maybe because, because they don’t like school.”

Are phones necessary for school? Could they be helpful? Are they causing problems? Let me know what you think in the poll.
