isnt it irriating and distracting while you are making your best effort to learn what teache ris trying to say in class and just because of some stupid mobile of your classmate you are not able to...specially when people forget to put in on silent and it suddenly rings when most serious topic is going on.....it breaks the rythm and decorrem of the class...what would you say...do you justify this?

Yes i agree with you. I dont think you should be allowed to have a phone in the classroom. However i dont see a problem with it at work. When we are adults we shouldn't be boosed around about whether we can have a phone or not.

I always turn my cellphone in silent in mode. I agree that we all have to adhere with the phone etiquette while inside the class. This would facilitate spontaneous learning. Hearing the phone ringing only diverts the attention of the class. but this case is not exclusive for students. A lot of teachers and professors bring with them their cellphone and are even free to use it during class hours. School authorities must ban the use of cell phones, teachers and students alike are not excused.
