The French parliament voted to ban smartphones and tablets from schools.
France already restrained students from using smartphones and personal tablets during instruction hours since 2010, but the new ban prohibits students aged 3 to 15 from even bringing their devices to school, according to Mashable.
It is all part of a campaign to get students less addicted to electronics that even current French President Emmanuel Macron campaigned on in 2017. Experts have said that the increased use of electronics has also led to greater cyber-addiction, sleep disruption, and bullying.
According French newspaper Le Monde, these devices will only be allowed for educational purposes or for students with a disability.
