What happened when cell phones were banned in a high school?

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that a local High School "saw a dramatic reduction in behavior problems and a boost in physical activity, while students started talking to each other again just two months after restricting mobile phone use".

The school principal reports to newspaper that "within eight weeks of implementing the new policy, there was a 90 percent reduction in phone-related behavior issues at school."

Ανέφερε ότι ήταν “τόσο ξεκάθαρο” ότι τα κινητά τηλέφωνα εμπόδιζαν τη μάθηση, την προσοχή των μαθητών στις τάξεις και μείωσαν τη συναισθηματική και κοινωνική τους νοημοσύνη. Δήλωσε ότι η χρήση του τηλεφώνου συνέβαλε άμεσα στις συγκρούσεις μεταξύ των μαθητών.

"At a time when mental health is such a concern for our young people, our school community has seen the phone as a significant and negative factor in student well-being," he said.

A online application calling for a ban on mobile phones in NSW high schools managed to gather more than 21.600 signatures.

Μια έρευνα γονέων του Davidson High School το 2021 διαπίστωσε ότι το 89 τοις εκατό υποστήριζε την πολιτική να επιτρέπονται τα κινητά τηλέφωνα στο σχολείο, αλλά να μην επιτρέπεται στους μαθητές να τα χρησιμοποιούν.
