France Outlaws Cell Phones In School

France’s education chief says that when students go back to school next fall, all mobile phone use will be banned in schools for students roughly 15 and younger.

“These days the children don’t play at break time anymore; they are just all in front of their smartphones, and from an educational point of view, that’s a problem,” Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer said, according to The Telegraph.

What can I say, but the Truth.

Thank you God for the offensive, get in my way cross of Jesus laid on the back of my life that keeps me from being mastered by anything.

 “Everything is permissible for me”–but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”–but I will not be mastered by anything. (1 Corinthians 6:12)

(irlpodcast.org)—France’s education chief says that when students go back to school next fall, all mobile phone use will be banned in schools for students roughly 15 and younger.

“These days the children don’t play at break time anymore; they are just all in front of their smartphones, and from an educational point of view, that’s a problem,” Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer said, according to The Telegraph.

“We are working on this issue, and it can take different forms,” Blanquer said. “You may need a mobile phone, for example for educational purposes, for emergency situations” so perhaps the phones can be confined to lockers.

The French educational code has banned using phones in class in elementary schools and secondary schools since 2010. As a result, phones are supposed to be kept in students’ backpacks.

But apparently that’s not what happens.

“It is extremely difficult to get respect,” Valerie Sipahimalani, teacher and deputy secretary general of the national union of secondary school teachers, told Le Monde.
