ENGLAND’S Minister of State for School Standards, Nick Gibb, has said that kids shouldn’t be allowed to take their phones into school.
There is no nationwide rule about phones in schools, as it’s up to individual head teachers. They can ban phones if they want, but many say that phones and apps can be useful tools for learning in the classroom.
“While this is clearly a matter for the head teacher, my own view is that schools should ban their pupils from bringing smartphones into school or the classroom,” Mr Gibb said.
Others have said that kids should at least be allowed them on the journey to and from school.
