Children in France will have to leave their smartphones and other mobile devices at home or turn them off while in school.
French specialists have chosen that, and the restriction on the utilization of any Internet-associated gadget in school, applies to kids between the ages of 3 and 15, as per CNN reports. 

French secondary schools that encourage youngsters matured 15 or more established will choose whether to implement the boycott. 

"We realize that there is a wonder today, for example, screen compulsion, the marvel of hurtful utilization of cell phones ... Our essential job is to secure kids and youths." . 

The boycott satisfies one of President Emmanuel Macron's political race guarantees.
The decision also drew criticism from the opposition, which said it was not a law dating back to the 21st century, noting that the ban has been in place in the country since 2010, and there is hardly a teacher that allows smartphones in the classroom.

The 2010 law prohibits the use of smartphones during "any educational activities".

The new ban allows for exemption when it comes to disadvantaged children or for educational purposes.

Nowadays, people are beginning to rely on devices such as smartphones, which evoke the emergence of the term "phobia" or the fear of lack of access to a mobile phone or other mobile devices.

A UK poll showed that 66% of citizens surveyed have some form of homophobia and 41% admit to having two or more phones.


Addiction levels for smartphones and the Internet are steadily increasing.

A study in South Korea, which looks at teenagers addicted to the Internet and smartphones, found that these people have a low ability to draw their attention, greater loss of control and distractibility.

Another study by the London School of Economics and Political Science showed that banning smartphones at school leads to higher scores on student tests.

More than 90% of French children between the ages of 12 and 17 have a mobile phone by the end of 2016. This is a 72% increase compared to 2005, according to French telecommunications regulator ARCEP.
