Since students now all have laptops，the school decides to cancel the computer lab. Do you think it is a good idea or not?
I do not agree that the computer lab should be cancelled.
Firstly, although it is true that most students now have their own computers, we should not overlook the group of students that cannot afford to buy them. Some of the families don’t even have enough income to cover all the tuition, let alone buying laptops that cost thousands of yuan. But poverty should not be the obstacle preventing students from accessing the new technology.
Secondly, according to my own experience, when students are allowed to use their own laptops in class, they tend to get distracted from either social media or computer games, which reduces their learning efficiency. Instead, the computers in the computer lab often don’t have these functions，and therefore can lead to better concentration.
