Phones at Recess?
By: Eric G. and Haskell M., Staff Writers
Should we have phones at lunchtime? Well, let’s see what the students of Magruder Middle School have to say.
– “Yes, because we need to call our parents sometimes.” – Tony Z. 8th Grader
– “No, because people will use it to go on Instagram and Facebook. Only if its used for schoolwork.” – Cameron J. 8th Grader
All of these students bring up a valid argument, and we respect each of these students quotes. Some of the students believe that there should be phone at lunch recess, for more entertainment, and so they could have a better time. Others believe there shouldn’t be phones, due to the fact that students could look up inappropriate things, and so on. At the high schools, students can use their phones at snack and lunch, but it is the opinion of the journalism staff that due to the age group and it being during school time, it is the wisest decision to keep our current policy of no phones at recess.
