Pupils should be banned from taking smartphones into school, the minister for school standards in England has told the BBC.
Nick Gibb spoke out ahead of the government publishing new guidance for schools, expected to address internet safety, social media and online gaming.
It is expected to say children should be taught to limit the amount of time they spend online.
Although I think smartphone use should be controlled in schools, especially as kids can access porn and these so called suicide sites, I don't think banning them outright would be a good idea and would probably meet a lot of resistance from parents and kids alike.
Parents like to keep track of their kids and for the kids themselves, it can be a quick way to organise their day, but I see no reason why phones should be allowed in the classroom.
Should phones be banned in school?
