TORONTO — Cellphones will be banned in Ontario classrooms during instructional time, starting in September — news that some suggest is meant to distract from ongoing criticism over autism funding.
Education Minister Lisa Thompson said in a statement Tuesday that a formal announcement is coming soon.
“Ontario’s students need to be able to focus on their learning — not their cellphones,” she wrote. “By banning cellphone use that distracts from learning, we are helping students to focus on acquiring the foundational skills they need like reading, writing and math.”
