Country Bans Phones, Tablets From Schools For Students Under 15

An entire country has voted to ban kids from carrying smartphones and tablets in the upcoming school year! See why… says France has just decided to ban phones and tablets from public schools! Nearly 90% of French teenagers (12-17) own a smart phone but they will not be allowed to bring them to school or have to keep them shut off the entire school day. The new law gives schools the right to impose a partial or total ban on connected devices. The law would apply to students under the age of 15-years-old.

Critics of the new law say that it won’t accomplish anything. What do YOU think? Would banning phones and connected devices at school make kids more productive?
