for me. not all times, cellular phone should be banned because it's really help us (students) in our everyday life. how? when the emergency time comes. we really need our cp. not all schools have their telephones and cellphones to call onto. <based on my experiences> . but for all THE STUDENTS ! use your phones when there is vacant time. never ever use it when a teacher is discussing. it's not good. maybe WE should know the right way of using it when we are in SCHOOL .

Cellphones in school are big distractions. I'm a student myself and cellphones are not allowed in school. Most students live with this rule, but there are still some who bring phones in school. IF they are caught, they automatically get a SANCTION which is a really really bad thing. Before, students would only get warning slips, but since a lot has been bringing these past years, the school has taken a big precautionary measure to stop students from bringing their phones in school and using them in class.

All in all it's about luck, whether you get caught or not.

BUT personally, I think that I wouldn't even need to bring a cellphone. If there are emergencies for communication, I can always ask a faculty to help me, or use the phone booths in our school.

SCHOOL is for SCHOOL. I don't need a cellphone in order to learn and in order to get better grades.

what took so long to lodge such bill?
this is a matter of commonsense!

the word ban is improper, it should be the use of mobile phone is not allowed.

besides you don't need a congress to pass a commonsense ruling.

the school itself can impose such policy not necessarily the congress.

there are more important matters rather than is self regulating policy of the schools.
