In this category of composition, the writer aims to persuade the reader to accept his or her...
Most of the schools felt that cellular phones are a danger because they are used for drug dealing, bomb threats, and cause disturbance.
Apparently when considering all aspects of the situation they left out the minor detail of emergencies.
These essays are sometimes called argumentative essays because of this.
A persuasive essay is a form of academic writing that is built around a central argument.
If a student needs to make a phone call they should be allowed to make it from a hallway, an empty class room, outside in front of the building, or somewhere in which they are not disrupting class.
The total ban of cell phones in schools is not necessary at all times.
If a situation like this or one like the attack on Columbine High School were to occur cell phones would help students and faculty to make phone calls for help in time of emergency.
Although some people are against the use of phones in school, sometimes it is appropriate for them to be used.
