France just banned smartphones in schools during all hours of the day


Starting this school year, French students won’t be seeing much of their phones during the day.

France just passed a smartphone ban for students up to 15 years old that will go into effect in September, the Agence France-Presse reports. Schools with students older than 15 can choose whether to impose a phone ban. The country had already enacted a smartphone ban during class hours, but this legislation will extend to breaks and meal times, effectively completely banning smartphones from schools with students under the age of 15.
