School and police officials should not be able to check are cell phones and social networking sites because that is none of their business. For example, at a school, if a fight breaks out, and a student has recorded it and posted it, the principal should not be able to take action and taking his phone. Monitoring students’ online activity is an invasion of privacy and a violation of freedom of speech. I think that… teachers and principals should not be able to take the kids phones. In addition, If the kid was at school and he was on it when class was going on and he wasn’t supposed to be on it and the teacher asked for his phone and was going to check what he was on, the student should have the right to not give it to her because that is none of her business what he was on, but if he was on it when not supposed to then the teacher should just take until the end of class and give it back. If the device is not school-owned and is not being used on school campus, schools should not monitor a student’s online activity. If an
Students have rights just like everyone else, even if they are in a school environment. It can be humiliating and dangerous to a student's well-being to have their property searched and violated. Some students are even willing to sue if they feel they were unjustly searched. Dear faculty of high schools across America I implore you to think before you decide to search through and violate a student's cell phone; I believe that this practice is harming students.
Should schools or police officers be able to check people’s phones to “prevent” bullying or crimes? Some argue that schools should be able to check students’ phones to lead them away from cyber bullying. Officials, and officials only, should be able to use information from private devices or social networking sites in order to protect the community. If the police do it, they may be able to prevent crimes.
Phones today are becoming more accessible to everyone, especially teens. As phones become more popular, they are introducing phones with much more advanced technology. People today can use their phones for way more than just calling and texting one other. Now people use phones to not only connect with others through social media, but to play games, search the web, and take pictures. Although phones have many valuable uses and students enjoy connecting with each other through social media, phones should not be allowed in school.
Should school officials and police officers be allowed to search through students phones? School officials and police officers should be allowed to search students phones. School officials and police officers need to be able to check students phones, so they can keep everyone safe. Some people think that school officials shouldn’t be able to search students phones, instead it should be the parents problem.
Should schools and officials be able to go through one’s phone for information? I don’t believe that schools and officers have the right to be able to go through a suspect’s phone for information about something, I believe it is a violation of privacy, and ignores the fourth amendment which protects people from random search and seizures. For example, they could have embarrassing or funny personal photos and videos with a friend that they wouldn't want anyone watching or seeing. In the article “Phone Patrol” it states “People could have....pictures in there, like of their girlfriends, that they don’t want somebody else to see, and it would be an invasion of privacy not only for them, but the other person also.”, and I believe police don’t need to be snooping through a suspect's personal information and pictures because they are invading one’s privacy. In addition, schools shouldn’t be able to stalk and look at a student's social media and then go through that students stuff. If there’s a situation, the school shouldn’t get involved, they should let the student’s parents take care of that. In the article “Password Protected”, it says “Schools do
In each school there are absurd rules; ours by far has the most. Ok I get it, the staff is trying to us learn with a cleaner environment, but they have to be able to understand that phones CAN help you learn! Phones give us opportunities to hold many useful things such as calculators, passwords, and our schedules. I can see that they would want to take it away because it is “distracting”, but I honestly think that it is more distracting not having it then actually having it, now all we can think about is checking our phones. Although much of the public debate is against it, there are pros associated with allowing cell phones in school. These advantages should not be ignored since cellphones in schools can actually add value to the
Officials shouldn’t look through your phone , because it’s a violation of privacy. For example, when a teachers look through students phones it makes students lose trust in their teacher.In the article Freedom Comes First, it claims that “There should be a level of trust between a teacher and a student.”This shows students to trust teachers and the things they say, or do.In addition, officials have no rights to look at any other device not owned by them or their company. Like in the article Freedom Comes First, it states
At certain measures it is ok, for example if the person is using a school computer, the school should have that kind of authority. “Kids need to be free to say something without feeling like the school is watching them 27/7 (qtd. in Wallace). What a student does on their phone off school hours should not concern the school in any way. Even if there is bullying involved, the school shouldn’t be allowed to browse the student’s account. Think about it, if you tell the students that the school has all kind of access to their social media accounts, they most likely wouldn’t bully online anymore. With that being said, the school would have access to all kinds of personal information yet there would be nothing to prevent. “School officials had violated students’ free speech rights when two girls were suspended from extracurricular activites for posting pictures of themselves with phallic-shaped lollipops” (Wallace). The students were suspended from events at school even though everything they were accused of happened outside of school. I believe that the school shouldn’t have had the right to eliminate them from activities for something that they should have never found out
Should officials be able to take your phone or any other electronic if they feel they need to? Schools believe that they can take students phones due to cyber bullying. If they can take the students phone they can stop the cyber bullying and get it under control. They have the right to monitor students online activities. If they are doing something inappropriate, the school can stop it right away. Say the police arrest someone for drugs, they can easily
Students should be allowed to bring they phone to school.. I think this is good because you have some kids that walk to school they be having to call there momma, dad, grandma, or grandad to tell them that they on they way home.. If your child walk everyday after school you would want them to bring there phone to school so they can call you when they on they way home .. I think it is important to bring your phone to school.. You can be in danger when you walking and want nobody be able to do anything thats why I think it is important to let kids bring they phone to school..
Bullying is something that could become a problem if cell phones were allowed during school hours. For example, in the locker room, while students were changing in or out of gym clothes another student could take a rude or unnecessary picture. Those types of things really hurt. Using a feature on cell phones called texting, students can send mean or hateful things to each other during the day, and hurt many other people’s feelings. One more way that bullying could arise from allowing cell phone use during school hours is by students stealing other student’s phones. Phones could be stolen off desks or from lockers; also a student could walk right up to another and take their phone away. There is already enough bullying throughout schools, and there is no need to add one more way for bullying to happen. School is supposed to be a place where students can come and feel comfortable and be themselves, but bullying does not make school a happy place.
Do officials have the right to go through a person’s phone without a warrant? Officials have all the rights in the world to search a student’s belongings no matter what the case is. Though, some people believe officials should not be allowed to go through student’s phones without permission, as it is an invasion of privacy.
Did you know that police officers and school principals are allowed to look through your personal device? Police officers should be allowed to look through your personal device. However others would say that police officers should not be able to search through your personal device. Police searching through your phone helps make swift justice. “We were able to establish who the arrested people were in contact with. It helped us to find who may also be involved in that crime,” Detective Chris Grider. Officials searching through your phone could even save lives by saving kids from constant bullying over the web. “Schools should have the right to punish students for online activity because doing so might save lives” Joseph Maneen. What that means
Pursuing this further, students should not be allowed to bring cell phones to school because it can be used for cyber bullying. Students bully other students in hallways, bathrooms, classrooms and playgrounds but cyber bullying is when you bully someone throughout emailing. Eventually, a
