Should Cell Phones be Allowed in School?

The debate about cell phone use in school is a very hot and current debate. One side says that this is the only way that parents can contact their children while they are at school, but the reality is that rarely are phones used for this purpose. Students argue that taking phones away is a violation of their rights. My opinion, and this is only what it is, is that cell phones should be allowed to be brought into school, but not allowed inside the classrooms where they can disturb others and are also often used for cheating.
