Should mobile phones be banned in schools?

Pupils using mobiles

  • “You’ll have someone’s eye out with that” used to be the refrain of teachers in my day. In malevolent hands, a pencil, a rubber, even a piece of paper could become a lethal weapon in class, and that’s before we got on to compasses and Bunsen burners. A mobile is the same: a potentially potent tool for learning but strangely feared in a school pupil’s hand, where it is assumed to wreak havoc with concentration, unleash cyber bullying and surreptitiously video up teachers’ skirts. But isn’t it also madness when schools that cannot afford modern IT facilities ignore the powerful computers in every pupils’ pocket?
