It’s time ban smartphones in schools. The education unions are against it so we should be in favour.

I am going to say something I have never said before; I agree with Gavin Williamson.
The Education Secretary wants to ban smartphones being used by pupils at school.
In studies around the world research has shown that most pupils separated from their smartphones perform considerably better in educational settings.
A report by the think tank Outward found that school which had banned phones delivered a 6% improvement in test scores.
It’s in the playgrounds that the biggest boost may be seen as such devices may become gateways to pornography, cyberbullying and even sexual grooming.

The idea was first proposed back in 2019 and now Williamson has begun a six week consultation to find out the best way to handle the ban.
The simplest way is for pupils to take the phone to school and then put them in a locked cabinet until going home time.

The argument that most reinforces the need for a ban is not that the pupils become brighter and more focussed but that the teaching union is against it.
The collection of crypto communists running the union have no interest in the pupils but every interest in political power. If they are in favour I’m against it.
PS If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps und the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
