Introduction

Over the years mobile phones have become more and more popular. Mobile phones play a tremendous part in people's life. People can't survive without mobile phones as they think that it is an essential tool. From texting your friends to saving a persons life. Recently the Daily Star had undergone a survey to discover which age group, who owns the most mobile phones, the results were phenomenal as it was shown that teenagers have the most mobile phones. One of these issues concerns the mobile phones policy for students. Students should be able to carry cell phones during school, so why ban them? When they have only made out lives simpler and safer?

Many argue that mobile phones disrupt classes and affect your learning and can be used as a tool of destruction. The reporter claimed that mobile phones coming into classes are preposterous, ridiculous and ludicrous and plays a negative impact on the pupil's education. It is very understandable to think this way. However, in my opinion this is absurd.
