I think some kids will not do anything shocking on cell phone in school.   If kids could bring cell phone to school, the teachers should have rules for the classroom about cell phones. Kids that use their phone for non emergency uses only, students phone can be taken and the parents have to pick it up at school . </li></ul><ul><li>Source :write.teachingmatters.org/node/227 </li></ul>
