France has introduced a new law banning smartphones and personal tablets from schools.
The French Parliament votes (62-1) on Monday to bring in the new law to schools.
France already stops students from using smartphones and personal tablets during instruction hours. But the new ban prohibits students aged 3 to 15 from even bringing their devices to school.
For students 15 years and older, it is up to their school to decide whether they may bring or use their devices at school.
The new law is part of a campaign to get students less addicted to electronics.
The current French President Emmanuel Macron campaigned on this in 2017. Experts have said that the increased use of electronics has also led to greater cyber-addiction, sleep disruption, and bullying.
The new “blanket” ban begins this September.
