AKIPRESS.COM - Monday is the first day that French schoolchildren under 15 cannot use their cellphones at any point during the school day, thanks to a new nationwide law, SFGATE reports.

The ban, passed in July following a campaign pledge made by French President Emmanuel Macron, will affect elementary and junior high schools across the country as they return from the summer break.

The new law, which went into effect on August 5, bans all types of cellphones, as well as tablets and smartwatches.

France has banned all children under 15 from using their phones in school.

French students returning from the summer break will no longer be able to use their phones during the school day.

Earlier this summer France banned all students under 15 from using all cellphones, tablets, and smartwatches at any point during the day.

That includes mealtimes.

The government is concerned that students are becoming too dependent on and distracted by their phones.

Monday is the first day that French schoolchildren under 15 cannot use their cellphones at any point during the school day, thanks to a new nationwide law.

The ban, passed in July following a campaign pledge made by French President Emmanuel Macron, will affect elementary and junior high schools across the country as they return from the summer break.

The new law, which went into effect on August 5, bans all types of cellphones, as well as tablets and smartwatches.

France recently just banned smartphones in schools. Now, people are debating whether or not the same should take place in the United States. Buzz60's Natasha Abellard has the story.

While a ban on cellphones during class hours was already in place since 2010, the new law extends to breaks and mealtimes.

Schools are free to choose themselves if they will implement the ban for students over 15. There are also some exceptions to the ban, such as for students with disabilities.
