Should we ban mobile phones in school?

“…we find that student performance in high stakes exams significantly increases post ban.”

“results indicate that these increases in performance are driven by the lowest achieving students.”

“restricting mobile phone use can be a low-cost policy to reduce educational inequalities.”

“these findings do not discount the possibility that mobile phones could be a useful learning tool if their use is properly structured.”
