New Policy: No Smartphones in Elementary (and possibly middle and high)

No, not in China.

In Israel.

Rabbi Peretz also said the Ministry has decided to remove smartphones from classrooms.

“We have made the decision to remove smartphones from elementary schools, and we are thinking about middle and high schools,” he said. “We did this so that the classrooms and learning areas would be free from distractions – and this will make things easier on you, the teachers. We have received excellent feedback from teachers and principals.”

I approve.
