Should cell phones be allowed in class?

  People might have a different opinion on this topic, but the way I see it, it should be as follows: any student that is managing to cope with the workload and their grades reflect that, should have the freedom to text on their cellphone as long as it doesn’t sidetrack or disturb any other students. If the work is still being completed and there is no decrease in the student’s grade then there is no need to be strict and confiscate cellphones. However, if the student is failing to get the work done and they are struggling then cellphones should not be allowed. I think the situation should be assessed and then if it is not affecting anyone else, perhaps the student should be given the freedom to use his phone, especially if he or she has requirements to talk to their girlfriend/boyfriend back home.
