According to The Canadian Press, “Ontario is set to announce this week that cellphones will be banned in classrooms, starting in the next school year”.
The directive for 2019-2020 bans all phones from instructional time, but leaves enforcement to individual boards and schools.
The ban follows government conducted education consultations last year, in which 97 per cent of respondents stated they favoured restrictions on phones in class.
