June 9, 2010 - PRLog -- Most schools implement policies which prohibit students to use cellular phones in the school premises. Well, if the students don’t observe the proper cell phone etiquette, it would definitely be a disruption in class.

“…Aside from being a disruption in school, cell phones are sometimes used by students to cheat during examinations…” Added Xaviera Arata

This can be done through text messaging; not only that, if you text other people while the professor is having a lesson, you will not be able to concentrate and you will hardly learn a thing.

A very good example is when a cell phone rings during class. The ringing sound will definitely disrupt the entire class and they will lose focus on the lessons. Cell phones with cameras are a menace because it can invade the private lives of other students.

There is always a right time for everything. Cell phones should be used outside the school premises. That way, students can focus on their lessons without any disruptions. If the students bring cell phone, they need to turn it off upon entering the school grounds. Cell phones are indeed part of everyday living and it is very convenient to carry around, anytime and anywhere. It seems that many students don’t know about the proper etiquette of cell phone usage and this is the reason why many school faculty and administrators don’t want to see any cell phones.

During the school hours, students don’t need to use cell phones. All they need to do is to listen to the lessons given by their teachers. If there are any emergencies, students can be contacted through the school phone. By restricting the use of cell phones in school premises, teachers don’t need to deal with students texting one another, taking photos, surfing the internet, or even cheating in exams. With no cell phones, there are also no distractions.

Parents give their kids cell phones so that they can easily contact them at any time. However, they need to educate their kids on proper cell phone use. If the school has rules regarding the restriction of cell phone in school premises, students should follow accordingly. They can bring their cell phones to school but they should turn it off upon entering the campus. They can only use it again after school hours.

“…The schools should also be strict in implementing the disciplinary actions to those students who are caught using cell phones. That way, students will not violate the rules…” Added Xaviera Arata
