Nowadays, more and more senior high students(middle school) start to use mobilephone. It seems every student owns one phone. However, since the main task for them is to study, is mobilephone really necessary for them?

It is true that many students have mobile phones. I think that it is not a good idea for students to have mobile phones as it greatly affects the students' study. They play with it in class sending messages, playing games and listening to music, which is a great distraction to them from their study. How to solve this problem is the biggest headache to all the teachers. The only to ban the students from using mobile phones depends on the attitude of their parents. Without their getting their kids mobile phones, it is much easier for teachers to teach the students in class and better grades will be achieved. Just think of those old days when we were students without mobile phones. We still lived through and could manage many things without them. Nowadays many parents say that they need to contact their kids every so often as to lead their kids to a worse grade at school because of the use the unwanted mobile phones. It is only something luxury to the kids as toys...
